Father’s day is June 17th. Do you need a gift idea? This shaving soap recipe couldn’t be easier using our foaming bath whip with a couple additional ingredients. The foaming bath whip is a very gentle and versatile base (check out our favorite fluffy frosting recipe and sugar scrub). The bath whip has a great lather and a super creamy and and bubbly texture in the shower (ladies – you’ll love this for leg shaving). This easy recipe whips up a luxurious and soothing shaving soap with chamomile extract to help soothe Dad’s face. It’s scented with Blue Man Fragrance Oil which is perfectly sweet and masculine (base notes of Black Patchouli blended with Orange Peel, Sparkling Mandarin, Coriander Leaves, Star Anise and Venezuela Tonka).

I was so excited to see sea clay being offered at Bramble Berry!
This dark gray-green clay is ideal for facial masks and body mud masks. It originated as mud laid down under the sea millions of years ago. This clay acts as a mild exfoliant and is thought to have many properties around detox and cellulite reduction. – Bramble Berry website
I immediately thought of making a facial bar. I had a new recipe that I wanted to try out. This recipe is great for those that want to go palm oil free but don’t want to sub lard or tallow. I’m really happy with how it came out and make it often.
