Homemade Shaving Soap For Men


Hope all the lucky dads out there are having a wonderful Father’s Day!  I wanted to do something special for my hubby to let him know how much I appreciate all he does for his family by starting off his day with a clean shave using some homemade Rosemary Shaving Soap.   He declined, but was happy I offered.  I don’t think he trusts me with a razor so close to his face, since he sees the numerous nicks on my legs from shaving.

If your hubby trusts you to give him a shave,  try this homemade shaving soap for men.

Rosemary Shaving Soap

2/3 cup rose water

4 ounces pure soap flakes

4 drops rosemary essential oil

3 drops lemon essential oil

2 drops bay essential oil

1 drop sage essential oil


1.  Warm the rose water in a nonreactive saucepan over low heat. Place the soap flakes in the top of a double boiler over simmering water.  Stir the warmed rose water into the flakes to moisten.  Keep stirring the mixture until the soap has melted to a smooth gel (if necessary use a potato masher to dissolve the soap).  Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.

2.  Stir in the essential oils and spoon the soap into a sterilized shallow 7-ounce glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.  Set aside to harden for 3 to 5 days.  Keep handy in a cool, dark place.
