    Hi Danielle! You can use this shaving cream for women. Try replacing Peppermint and Rosemary with oils that suit your skin type: https://www.edensgarden.com/blogs/news/essential-oils-for-different-skin-types

    Can this shaving cream also be used for women? If so what EOs would you recommend adding?

    Hi Monique! Our Bergamot is FCF free, meaning it is not phototoxic and can be used safely in the sun. Alternatively, you may try our Sweet Orange essential oil which is also non-phototoxic.

    My bearded man works outside most of the time. Is there an oil I could substitute for the Bergamot in the beard oil recipe?

    Hi Kaitlin! The beard oil has a shelf life of about 6 months. The shelf life of the shave cream depends on the shelf life of the Shea Butter you use (generally 6 months as well).
