DIY shaving cream using the Thermomix

Lately i’ve been getting into DIY products that we use on a regular basis, handwash, cleaning spray, body wash and today it was shaving cream. My husband asked me to buy some more shaving cream.  As I was reading the ingredients on the back of the can in the supermarket, I thought surely it would be better to make this myself with natural lubricants rather than petrochemicals.  I just think that if I can eliminate some of the day to day unnecessary questionable chemicals, then I will. I adapted this recipe from the dōTERRA blog.

I purchased the shea butter from my local health food shop and I can certainly help you get these amazing, therapeutic grade essential oils for personal or business use at wholesale prices – click here to learn more.
