All natural Honey Lavender Shave lotion
Updated: Oct 24, 2020
Did you know that a lot of chemicals are in lotion ? That means that it soaks up in the pores in your face. That is scary that a product we use everyday can be so harmful. Here is a simple recipe that is low cost and you might own everything in it already.
1/2 cup almond or olive oil
1/3 cup liquid castile soap
1/4 cup raw honey
10 drops lavender essential oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a pump or squeeze bottle.
To use: Shake well, then pump or squeeze a liberal amount onto your hands. Lather slightly, then slather onto skin. Shave as usual, then rinse down the drain.
Lavender is a great plant for soothing and nourishing the skin, but if lavender scent isn’t your jam, sandalwood would also be excellent! Just make sure to avoid citrus essential oils like lemon and orange. Citrus can cause the skin to be more sensitive to sunlight.
The vitamin E in this oil acts as a preservative—it’ll pretty much never expire.
