DIY Natural Shave Cream for Him

If you know your guy prefers lemon or cedarwood, you can customize this DIY recipe to suit him. Besides, that’s the beauty of DIY!


½ cup extra virgin coconut oil
½ cup organic shea butter
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
1 resealable, glass jar or other air-tight container


  1. Create a double-boiler over the stove, making sure the top bowl or pot is not touch the water in the bottom pot. Turn heat to high so water begins to boil, and then reduce to a simmer.
  2. Add coconut oil and shea butter, using a spoon or spatula to mix them up a bit. Heat until completely melted, stirring occasionally to help break down all the solids (particularly in the shea butter).
  3. Remove bowl from heat and add olive oil. Stir to combine.
  4. Transfer to fridge for a few hours until consistency solidifies.
  5. Spoon mixture into stand mixer and blend until peaks begin to form.
  6. Add essential oil and continue to blend until incorporated and you’ve reached desired consistency. Your cream should be light and fluffy.

Note: When using the cream, it will turn to an oil consistency. Don’t be alarmed – that’s the nature of these pure, wholesome ingredients.
