Homemade shaving gel

How to make shaving gel?

Here are four blends of essential oils, each making 120 g of shaving gel. Two are more masculine and two more feminine, but of course you can always whip up a blend that will appeal to both men and women!

Pour the non-irritating gel into a 120 ml tottle bottle, using a Ziploc bag if the thickness of the gel makes it tricky to pour. Apply to wet skin before shaving. You’ll find that the razor glides more smoothly and your skin is left soft and lightly scented.


Version 1: warm, sweet, and slightly spicy

Version 2: fresh and lemony

Version 3: relaxing floral

Version 4: stimulating green

How to fill the bottle

  1. Prepare and sterilize your equipment and workspace.
  2. Take a Ziploc-type plastic bag, open it, and place it in a glass.
  3. Fold the sides of the bag over the mouth of the glass.
  4. Using a clean spoon, spoon the gel into the bag.
  5. Close the bag, squeezing out as much air as possible.
  6. Cut off a corner of the bag.
  7. Remove the black stopper from the Tottle bottle (by pulling and turning at the same time) and squeeze the bottle to remove some of the air.
  8. Place the cut corner of the bag over the opening of the bottle and squeeze the bag.
  9. It sometimes helps to tap the bottle gently to help the gel drop down inside the bottle.
  10. Squeeze the bottle to remove the air before replacing the corner of the bag over the mouth of the bottle and continue filling.
  11. Replace the stopper, and you’re done!

Tip: apply exfoliating oily gel in the days after shaving to prevent ingrown hairs
