Smooth Sailing

While we are talking about swim season here's a tip on how to save money (and the environment) by making your own shaving cream!


1/2 teaspoon sunflower oil
1/4 cup unscented glycerin soap
Double broiler
A cup or mug

In your double boiler, melt chunks of the glycerin soap. Stir in the sunflower oil. Move the mixture into a mug as soon as all of the glycerin chunks are melted. The “cream” will set quickly. When you’re ready to shave, simply work water against the soap until a lather builds and apply.
