Pre-Shave Oil Recipe - Blast From The Past Saturdays

Welcome to Blast From The Past Saturday.  Every Saturday I will be posting a previously published post, in order to take my weekends off.

===Originally posted May 4, 2012===

My son has recently started shaving with a straight edge razor.  He said that he got ingrown hairs with the disposable blades.  Well, shaving with a straight edge blade requires a whole set of additional shaving toiletries.

I was trying to think of something personal I could make my son for his birthday, to go with his cards and gifts, and thought about shaving creams.  That was the first time I made the shaving cream from the blog Frugal Granola.  I posted the link to the recipe a few days ago.  We all love this shaving cream.  Then my son came to me about a week later and asked if I could make him Pre-Shave Oil.  It apparently helps the whiskers on a man's face stand up better so he can get a closer shave.

I asked him to bring me his little bottle of Pre-Shave Oil so that I could try to figure out the ingredients.  He brought me the bottle and low and behold, I already had almost everything on hand.  The only thing that I needed was clove oil and pepper oil.  The clove oil was easy to find,  I have still not found pepper oil,  I will probably need to go online to buy that.  Anyway, this is the recipe that I came up with after looking at and smelling his oil.   He uses it everyday and says it works great.  The recipe will follow below the picture.

I am not sure of the cost, but it probably only cost me 15 to 20 cents to make 2 and 1/2 ounces.  To buy this Pre-Shave Oil from The Art of Shaving would cost $22.00 for 2 ounces.  That is amazing,  I just looked it up online.  I can't believe how much that saves.

Pre-Shave Oil Recipe

2 oz. castor oil
1/2 oz olive oil
6 drops sandalwood essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops clove essential oil

Pour in a bottle and shake well.  That's it, a very easy recipe

Have fun, and please leave me any comments or recommendations

Karen's Sparkling Emergen-C for Friday's Happy Hour

Today I am sharing Karen's Sparkling Emergen-C for Friday's Happy Hour.  This is more of an afternoon pick me up, rather then a cocktail, but it works for a great Happy Hour Drink also.  My friend Karen drinks these and it is super easy to make and it can go with you anywhere.  You can carry the Emergen-C with you and all you need is a bottle of sparkling water. 

Karen's Sparkling Emergen-C


1 16 oz bottle sparkling water or club soda
2 to 3 packets Tangerine Emergen-C


If you are someplace with a large glass pour the sparkling water into the glass and then slowly add the emergen-C a little at a time.  If you do it too quickly it will fizz over the top of the glass.

Gently stir and drink.

If a glass is not available, drink a couple of ounces of the sparkling water.

Then slowly pour 2 to 3 packs of Tangerine Emergen-C into the bottle.

Put the cap back on and gently turn the bottle to mix the Emergen-C into to water.


I hope that you like this drink.  It's really good and good for you also.

Have a great weekend.
