In my quest to become less dependent on chemicals and the man, I have discovered the best shaving soap I have ever used.
This foaming shave soap is simple to make and works great. My legs have never been smoother or softer:
aloe vera gel
castile soap (like Dr. Bronner’s)
essential oil (optional)
8 oz foaming soap bottle (got mine at Dollar Tree)
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1/4 cup castile soap
2 drops of vitamin E
1 TBSP olive oil
couple drops of essential oil
Mix aloe vera gel, castile soap, vitamin E, and olive oil in the soap bottle, add essential oil if desired (I did not add essential oil since the castile soap I used was peppermint already and scented the entire concoction).
shake bottle before use, this will last months
Eventually I plan on pealing the old label off and creating some cute labels of my own, but for now-masking tape and a sharpie do the trick.
Do you have any homemade recipes for skin care?
