For some reason shaving cream has been one of the last things I have tried to make for myself. Not sure why, probably because I never plan ahead enough and just break down and buy it, but this time I wouldn't let myself shave until I had tried this recipe. It was VERY good motivation.
I found this recipe mentioned in one of my facebook threads:
Homemade Shaving Cream
Basically, you take 1/3 cup of coconut oil and 1/3 cup of shea butter. I melt mine in a double broiler. Once melted you remove from the heat pour into another bowl and add 1/4 cup of olive oil, almond oil, or whatever oil makes you happy. I used almond oil this time because I happened to have some. I am sure the next time I make it I will use whatever I have on hand at that time.
Also, I love looking at other people coconut oil, mine never really needs to be melted, so I find it fun to look at it. I am sure when cooler weather comes along my coconut oil will need to be melted but for most months it is fairly liquified when I open it.
Once you mix in the other oil stick it in the fridge and let it get hard. Then whip for a few minutes
