This easy, homemade 3-ingredient shave gel uses healing herbs, soothing Aloe vera, and olive oil for a smooth shave that is kind to your skin.
Homemade 3-Ingredient Shave Gel
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place herbs and olive oil into oven-safe bowl or jar.
Once oven is preheated, place dish inside and turn off heat. Leave for 5 to 24 hours.
Follow these directions for a longer, more traditional method of infusing the oil.
Strain herbs out of the oil using a fine sieve or cheesecloth. Some of the oil will cling to the herbs, leaving you with about 1/4 cup.
Using a small whisk, combine the oil with the Aloe vera gel.
Store in a jar or bottle.
To use, wet skin.
Spread on a thin layer of gel.
Shave as normal.
These herbs are all known to be soothing or healing to the skin. Choose one, or use a combination.
- Chamomile flowers
- Calendula flowers
- Lavender flowers
- Comfrey leaf and/or root
- Plantain leaf
- Saint John’s Wort leaves and/or flowers
- Thyme leaf
- Lemon balm leaf
