I was looking into the virtues of Extra Virgin Olive Oil one day and was intrigued by one use in particular: a shaving lotion, rather than using a gel or a cream. I think I was interested in this because I really never have been 100% happy with any shaving gel/cream that I have used. Upon learning that olive oil is quite moisturizing and does not clog pores, I thought I'd give it a try.
I mixed a few drops of peppermint essential oil (to make is smell nice) in a squeeze bottle with olive oil. I used it the same way I have used a shave gel/cream. I found that it provided what felt like a thicker protective layer on my skin, yet, the shave was just as close. And, what I like the best the oil is moisturizing enough that I don't have to put lotion on afterward.
