How cool is our God! I mean think about it… He has provided us with so much that we can use from the Earth to keep us healthy, to maintain our wellness, and protect even our delicate skin! I get blown away when I really sit and think about all he is created for us! There is so much beauty when you just take a minute to look around. There are so many simple and natural remedies to just about any health issue that he has provided for us. He is so amazing, so creative, so beautiful! He paints the sky each morning and evening with glorious beauty that just astonishes me. We have a really cool God.
I love making my own homemade body care products for myself and my family. They are simple to make, with minimal ingredients, ingredients our God has given us to use. I love knowing that what we are putting on our bodies are safe and non-toxic.
Our skin is an organ and it absorbs what we put on it. Most cosmetics contain terrible chemicals, chemicals that are known to cause cancer (read about them here)! This is why I am so passionate about natural health, this is why you need to be as well! What is approved and deemed safe by the FDA is appalling. I have lost so much hope in our government and their standards, however I have found so much hope in our God! I use his ingredients. His ingredients are safe. His ingredients heal.
Now, to get my husband on board 100%, that is the battle. I keep trying and failing, trying and failing. I try this “potion” and that “potion.” What can I say? He likes what he likes. Finally… I made something that was approved by my very Italian hubby’s coarse facial hair and sensitive skin (See picture HERE). Not only is this cream made for ultra sensitive skin (thank you coconut oil and raw shea butter!), you will feel like you are at the spa with each shave, thanks to the eucalyptus and mint!
Homemade Shaving Cream… For Real Natural Men
- 1/4 cup Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup 100% Pure Unrefined Raw SHEA BUTTER
- 1/4 cup Natural Aloe Vera Gel
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup Pure-Castile Soap
- 10 drops of each Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oils (Or any other scent you like!)

I know it is investment to start making your own products. But, if you notice, all my body products, contain [mostly] the same main ingredients. There is a little investment upfront, but you will not only save mega bucks by making your own products, you will have piece of mind, and most importantly better health!
So, ladies and gentlemen, make some for the ones you love! We all have those special people in our lives that make us smile… your boyfriends, husbands, brothers, sons, grandfathers, uncles!
