DIY Shaving Gel
Today’s post is by my lovely friend Alison. She is mastering lots of DIY recipes for using around her home and I begged her to share her DIY shaving gel with us! Enjoy!
I have become addicted to making my own household products! It has become a fun game to find products in my home that I would normally purchase from the store, and find a recipe to create and make it my own! Since having my sweet baby boy, (9 months old, and he is the cutest if I do say so myself. 😉 ) I began to look at every cleaning and body product that we had. Conclusion- I didn’t want to be cleaning around and bathing my most precious possession in these crazy chemicals! I am now in the process of making our home a safe toxic free environment!
My latest endeavor has been to recreate my shaving cream. I like fuss free. I don’t want to have to scoop out, mix, and lather a cream in a jar, all while water is dripping off of me and into my precious mixture that I worked hard to make. Too much work! So after reading several recipes I combined a couple and came up with this, fuss free, ready to go, already foamed, shaving gel! This gave an extremely smooth shave and left my legs feeling soft and already moisturized!
Foaming DIY shaving gel
1 foaming soap dispenser (I used a leftover one I cleaned out and repurposed)
½ cup liquid castile soap
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup pure aloe vera gel
½ teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable glycerin
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E oil
6 drops Purification essential oil
5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil/blend of oils (I used Lavender because it is soothing to the skin and smells amazing! But use any scent you want, this is your chance to be creative!)
Dissolve the salt in the warm water, and then blend all of the remaining ingredients together. Put in a foaming dispenser, and voila! Easy peasy! Just give it a little shake before you pump!
