  • 1/3 cup Shea butter
  • 1/4 cup Virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Jojoba or sweet almond oil
  • 10 drops Rosemary essential oil
  • 3–5 drops Peppermint essential oil


  1. Place a small sauce pan over low heat and mix shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until melted. Transfer mixture to a heat-resistant bowl and add in jojoba oil (or almond oil), then the essential oils and stir.
  2. Chill mixture in refrigerator until solid. Once solid, remove from the refrigerator and whip mixture using a beater. Mix until light and fluffy. Store in an airtight container for up to one month.

Note: This shaving lotion is soap-free and will not create a lather, but rather a protective barrier between the razor and skin. Swish razor in water between strokes and enjoy!
