Olive Oil Shaving Cream

This smooth creamy shaving cream blend is great for the guys, but gentle enough for the ladies as well.

  • 1/4 c stearic acid
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp borax dissolved in 1 C hot water
  • 2 Tbsp grated Ivory soap

Melt stearic acid and oil over a double boiler until liquid is clear. Mix Borax mixture and grated soap until soap is dissolved, Pour the solution in a blender, add the melted oil mix, whip until a thick smooth cream forms. Add several drops of Peppermint or Lemon Essential oil, if desired.

Cool, Use as you would any shaving cream.

    • I might try it some time. Does this make enough for more than one use? If so how would I store it?

      Did y’all try this?

      I was thinking of making some for my husband but idk if it is for use immediately or if it is stable and I could make it and store in a jar so he could use it every morning? Thanks 🙂
