Sensitive skin is something both men and women deal with – especially in areas of the body we shave regularly. Nobody likes to deal with the red bumps and irritation that can come along with a bad shave.

Fortunately, you can give your skin a treat and help keep it looking and feeling good after shaving with a good DIY Shaving Cream. This soothing chamomile DIY shaving cream uses one of my favorite essential oils – Roman Chamomile oil.

This amazing gift from the earth has a calming effect on the skin, mind and body. So while you’re taking care of your skin, you can also have an aromatic treat for your mind and body too.

If you regularly make your own beauty products, then you probably have all of the ingredients on hand already.

Because of the melting point of coconut oil, you will want to store in an 8-ounce sealed mason jar in the fridge until you want to use.

    1. Since there aren’t any water-based ingredients in this shaving cream recipe, it should last for at least a few months. However, if water or moisture gets in the jar, or contaminated hands touch it, then that will accelerate the expiration.
