Olive Oil Shaving Cream

  • 1/4 C stearic acid
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 C hot water

  • 2 Tbsp grated soap (recipe calls for castille, I was going to substitute mine)

Melt stearic acid and oil in double boiler until a clear liquid forms. Mix hot water, Borax, and soap and stir until until the Borax and soap are dissolved. Pour the soap solution into a blender and blend well for about 1 minute. Slowly pour the melted stearic acid mixture into the soap solution. Blend on high until a smooth cream forms.

Pour into a clean container and allow to cool completely. To use, soften your beard (or legs) with warm water and then apply the shaving cream. Use a sharp, clean razor.
