Scented Essentials: Mr. Spicy Shaving Soap


| October/November 1995





Mr. Spicy Shaving Soap has a high percentage of cinnamon oil, which stimulates and lifts the beard for a close shave. This soap is tricky to make because the cinnamon oil must be dribbled in quickly while stirring or it will streak the soap. This soap also thickens unusually fast, so be ready to pour it into the mold as soon as you’ve stirred in the oil and the optional ground cinnamon.

•  12 ounces lye
•  32 ounces water
•  24 ounces coconut oil
•  38 ounces vegetable shortening
•  24 ounces olive oil
•  4 ounces cinnamon oil
•  1 tablespoon ground cinnamon ­ (optional)
