Organic Sandalwood — DIY Shaving Cream

By: Kimberly Daun, Certified Aromatherapist

Organic Sandalwood has a woody, calming scent that helps to reduce nervous tension.

When applied topically, it can help reduce oiliness and cool and soothe the skin.  These properties make it a fabulous addition to shaving cream.

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:
  1. Measure ingredients.
  2. Whip Shea butter, Coconut oil, and Sunflower oil until light and fluffy. This lasts about 5 minutes; I prefer not to melt soft butters because they can easily overheat and become grainy.
  3. Add essential oils and mix for an additional minute.
  4. Store in an airtight container.

  1. I have been making this shave cream a lot. I just use Soft Skin Syngery in it and different carrier oils. I found it much easier to make if I melted the ingredients in my candy warmer and then stuck it in the fridge to harden back up some. The time in the fridge varies with the carrier oil I use. I followed a process from a whipped body butter recipe. Once it has hardened some I whip it up. If it still is liquidy I put it back in the fridge some more. If not I whip it up really good so that it’s fluffy. I then put it in the fridge to harden up a bit again. When I pull it out I whip it up one last time and add my essential oils. I’ve been happy with the outcome everytime.

    I haven’t used commercial shave cream/gel in about 5 months. The consistency is more of a butter and I shave my legs in the tub so the oils disperse in the water and make my skin so soft. I also use it like a shower lotion. I rub it on my skin and leave it for a minute then rinse.
