I want to share a recipe that’s easy to make and has only a few ingredients. This recipe only needs 3 ingredients: 2 types of coconut oil and our new blend, Timber Essential Oil Blend. This blend gives a slightly masculine aroma which makes this recipe great to use for both men and women. This is the perfect Father’s Day gift for dad!
What I Love About This Shave Butter Recipe
Hi! Katie here, certified aromatherapist and creator of our Essential Oil Recipe Box, which includes this recipe this month.
I love this smooth and silky body butter–a perfect follow-up to shaving to soothe skin and prevent ingrown hairs and acne.
This recipe is also a great beard cream for the men who don’t shave.
What’s in This Shave Butter Recipe
Coconut Oil (Solid)
Solid Coconut Oil is used to dilute the essential oils, making sure it’s safe to apply on your skin. It has antibacterial properties and helps give this recipe the right consistency for a natural shave butter.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated Coconut Oil is used to dilute the essential oils, making sure it’s safe to apply on your skin. Just like the solid coconut oil, it has antibacterial properties and helps give this recipe the right consistency for a natural shave butter.
Timber Essential Oil Blend
This blend has a calming aroma and is skin soothing, both necessary elements to any shaving body butter.
