Creamy shaving soap recipe

TherapyGarden™ Rich & Creamy Shaving Soap

1 fl oz     TherapyGarden™ Aloe Vera Gel Whole Leaf
½ tsp     TherapyGarden™ Arrowroot Powder
4 oz     TherapyGarden™ Melt & Pour Premium Goat’s Milk Soap Base
2 oz     TherapyGarden™ Melt & Pour Silky Shea Butter Soap Base
1 tsp     TherapyGarden™ Kaolin Clay
¼ fl oz     TherapyGarden™ Calendula Flower Extract
¼ fl oz     TherapyGarden™ Lavender Essential Oil (or EO of your choice)
One     Decorative 8-10 oz mug (Dollar Store, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wal-Mart)

Pre-measure your ingredients and have them ready. You’ll want to work fast so that the soap base doesn’t skin over before you’re ready to pour.

Mix the Aloe Vera Gel and Arrowroot Powder together. Blend well.

Melt the Goat’s Milk and Shea Butter soap bases together in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup (Pyrex).

Add the Kaolin Clay to the melted soap base and whisk until thoroughly blended.

Add the Aloe Vera Gel/Arrowroot Powder mixture, Calendula Extract and Essential Oil.

Blend thoroughly and immediately pour into mug(s) or molds and spritz with rubbing alcohol.

Packaging idea: Tie a shaving brush to the cup handle with raffia or a luxurious satin cord (depending on the cup design) and shrink wrap for a professional finish.

Yield: One 8- to 10-ounce mug

    I have been looking for more natural products, espeically for cleaning and personal care – like shaving. I love the fact that this recipe has essential oil. I’ll have to try it out – thanks!
