Yield: 1 cup

- 1/4 cup honey raw
- 1/4 cup castile soap

If using fresh aloe vera gel, store your shaving cream in the refrigerator and use within a week.
Otherwise, your shaving cream should keep at room temperature for up to a month. If you’re worried about it going bad before you have had a chance to use it, try making smaller batches or storing it in the refrigerator in between uses.
