@OracleSage and I had talked a while back about making a thread to share some of our favorite home remedies, and I thought what more perfect place than here in the Gossmere category! Anyone from any guild is more than welcome to come and share.

I’d shared this one somewhere around here a couple of years ago. I get really bad razor bumps and found that this really helps when I apply it before shaving. I make a small batch of it, and it lasts for a few months at least.

Uncle Augo’s Pre-Shave Oil

  • 3 parts castor oil
  • 1 part olive oil
  • 5-10 drops of cedarwood essential oil
  • 5-10 drops of rosemary essential oil

A little bit goes a long way. Apply before you put on shaving cream. The oil softens the hair and allows for a closer shave with fewer “swipes,” and the castor oil and rosemary essential oil have great antibacterial properties to help cut down on razor bumps!
