This shaving butter recipe is rich, creamy, and fluffy. Basically, everything you want for a close shave. It also helps prevent cuts and irritation. The nourishing ingredients soothe and moisturize skin. Men can also use this to shave as well. For a masculine scent, you could replace most of the lavender with something like cedarwood. There are a lot of possibilities! If you are using substitutes just make sure the essential oil you use is good for soothing skin and won’t irritate it.
