I love making my own bath and body products. We make our own foaming hand soap, deodorant, toothpaste and lip balm and lotion bars. The only thing I haven’t tried to make yet is grooming products for my husband. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, and Father’s Day in a few months I thought it would be fun to make some products for my husband.

Here are some really neat ideas for DIY Grooming products that are guaranteed to make the men in your life smile:

Homemade Shaving Cream for Men from Blah Blah Magazine – this shaving cream is so smooth and silky and can also double as a beard butter! I’m sure it smells amazing with the sandalwood oil.
