All-Natural Shave Cream

VIDEO: With just one trip to the health store you can make an all-natural shave cream that is moisturizing, luxurious and spa-like. This is a great gift for men (and women!) plus it’s easy to assemble. After experimenting with a couple different recipes, I settled on this version. It’s worth mentioning that this shave cream goes on like a heavy lotion—it DOES NOT lather or foam. Apply a thin layer on damp skin, then shave…what’s left behind is moisturized, refreshed hair-free skin!


1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup shea butter

1/4 cup olive oil

5 drops eucalyptus essential oil (optional)

5 drops spearmint essential oil (optional)

Glass mixing bowl

Hand beater

    Chère Amrita,

    I came across your videos by accident, serendipitously I should say. I enjoy the little films and interesting ideas. I also like your commentary (intelligent and to the point, humorous and delivered in an agreeable voice) which is half the fun.

    There is something odd with some of the videos, I thought my computer was having a stroke but no; I looked at some others, some are ok others are not: you get music, background sounds (mixer for example in the shaving cream video) but when Amrita speaks nothing! very curious.

    I will try your Indianized Pound Cake it sounds delicious.

    Frugally yours
