For some bearded friends, shaving feels like an everyday chore. Post-shave care is in need of an upgrade because irritation is never a good thing. As we explored the world of botanicals, we learned calendula is great for the face. Our #LEVOmade infusion combines the medicinal herb with peppermint and sandalwood, too. The skin could use all the soothing, moisturizing, and cooling effects post-shave. Nothing like a big smile to go with a smooth face leaving dad looking so dapper.

Pro tip: look for calendula at your local farmers market! It’s commonly known as marigold- just make sure it’s organic and pesticide free. 🙂


1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup beeswax
1/4 cup avocado oil
2 tbsp dried calendula
2 tbsp dried mint
2 tbsp dried sandalwood


Pack LEVO Pod with a combined 2-3 Tbsp. of your dried calendula, mint, sandalwood.

Begin infuse cycle at 175 F for 30 minutes in coconut oil.

  • After infusion, remove the pod.
  • Add beeswax and avocado oil, infuse for another 5 minutes or until melted oil.
  • Dispense into jar and leave to cool down and completely harden.
  • To use, rub a pea size amount to your hands and pat on face.

If you gifted dad a Father’s Day treatment with your homemade after shave balm, show us! And as always, share what you make with @LEVO_Oil and be sure to tag it with #LEVOmade.
