Shaving Soap

Shaving Soap on it's side

Hello,

I've had requests for shaving soap so decided to whip a batch using essential oils.   I used Vetiver, Clary Sage and a Two Blooms custom EO blend.

In the mold:

We added ground oatmeal for a light exfoliation and clay.  It reminded us of being in a cozy library so we called it Biblio.

Here are the cut bars:

I love how smooth is feels on my skin and it provides nice bubblage.

This sounds like a great shaving soap!(and boy do I love a good shaving soap) I've never smelled Vetiver...I've heard of it, but that's about it. -Becky

Becky,

Yes, I'm quite enjoying it. I gave some to friend of mine to try shaving on his face and he said it had great slip. Vetiver smells like a smokey fire or a bit like tobacco depending on where you get it. You only need a small amount.
