DIY Toxin-Free Shave Butter for Men

My husband is a firefighter in the military and because of his job, he is forced to shave his face every single day. Shaving everyday makes his face break out so he got sent a (toxic-chemical filled) shave butter that he loved and used every morning. But since he is married to an Aromatherapist, I couldn't possibly let him continue using that toxic-fragrance filled shave butter! So, he asked if I could DIY/Hack him some non-toxic shave butter! That, is how I found this recipe!


This recipe is the perfect gift for any man in your life. However, this recipe doesn't just have to be for men! Continue reading for some more feminine essential oil blends that you can substitute for this recipe instead!


What you need:

  • 1/3 cup of Coconut Oil (I recommend this one)


  • 1/3 cup of Shea Butter (I recommend this one)


  • 2 tbsp of Olive Oil (I recommend this one)


  • 2 tbsp of Castile Soap (I recommend this one)


  • 20 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil (I recommend Young Living)

  • 20 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil (I recommend Young Living)


Directions for Recipe:

1. Make a double boiler using a small or medium pot filled with water and a glass measuring cup. Tip: The bottom of the glass measuring cup should not be touching or floating to the top of the water. If it is, then your water level is too high so just pour some out.
