• Aloe vera gel
  • Olive Oil
  • Essential Oil ( optional)

Combine one part olive oil with three parts pure aloe vera gel and few drops of essential oil.
Mix well and store it in a container.


  • 1/3 cup shea butter
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup jojoba or sweet almond oil
  • 3-5 drops peppermint essential oil

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until just melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl. Add in the jojoba oil and the essential oils. Stir to mix.


  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
  • 1/2  cup hand soap or castile soap or shea butter soap ( grate the soap and melt it )
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tsp of vitamin E oil

Mix all the above ingredients into a mixing bowl and pour it into a container.
To use, apply a thin layer of the shaving cream and shave for smooth, softer legs.


  • 1 bar soap
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup aloe vera gel
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 10-15 drops essential oils (optional)

Shred bar of soap and set aside. On low to medium heat place shredded soap into a pot with 4 cups of water. The soap will begin to dissolve in the water. Keep stirring to dissolve the soap complete and to avoid it from burning. Take it off the heat and add in the aloe vera gel and coconut oil. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill until solid. Remove from the refrigerator and whip using a hand beater or a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Spoon into a jar. The shaving cream would also make a great gift for that special someone in your life.
