Ladies Homemade Rosewater Shaving Cream

Ladies Homemade Rosewater Shaving Cream!

If you remember the Men’s Shaving Cream from awhile back, you might have wondered “Hey where is my pretty scented and colored shaving cream?” Have no fear, we came up with a similar shaving cream for the ladies that is safely tinted a sweet pink and smells amazing to boot!  If you have been wanting your own wonderfully scented, natural shaving cream you are going to want to read on and grab the recipe below. We even found a way to give it a sweet pink tint safely and naturally, so you really feel like it is just for you. Keep it for yourself and make some to gift for the holidays! Just tuck it into a basket with a couple other bath items it makes a great gift!

Directions for Ladies Homemade Rosewater Shaving Cream:

If your shea butter is hard, soften shea butter slightly in the microwave. Place shea butter, coconut oil, baking soda, rosehip oil, hibiscus/beet powder, and aloe vera gel in the bowl of your stand mixer. Start with 1 tsp. beet root powder to color and add more until you get the desired shade. img_0077Whip on high until fluffy and well mixed, scraping down sides often to get all ingredients.

Transfer to pump container for easiest use. You can find a variety of sizes and shapes, including the one pictured at your local craft store in the soap making section. You may find that a funnel helps you get it in the more narrow neck of pump bottles better.
