5 from 2 reviews

This DIY shaving cream takes just a few minutes to whip up and works beautifully!


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Dr. Bronner’s castile soap
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tbsp. of cocoa butter or shea butter
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
  • 10 drops essential oil – I use lemon, but you can use your favorite scent such as lavender, orange, etc.
  • empty liquid soap dispenser (I cleaned and reused one I already had)
  • small sauce pan
  • blender


  1. Begin by melting the coconut oil and cocoa or Shea butter in a sauce pan over low heat on your stove.
  2. While this is melting, scoop the aloe vera into your blender. Add the castile soap and baking soda. Then pour in the melted coconut oil and shea/cocoa butter. Lastly add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil.
  3. Put the lid on your blender and blend for 2 minutes. Don’t skip time; you want to blend more even if it looks fully blended because of the coconut oil.
  4. When it’s finished, pour into a soap dispenser and you’re ready to use it!
