I make a lot of homemade bath and body products for myself using all-natural ingredients, but my husband likes to use natural ingredients, too, and this recipe for homemade aftershave is one of his favorites. It’s made using nourishing ingredients that help soothe the skin after shaving, but can also be used as a refresher throughout the day.
You can make several bottles using a variety of essential oils (or essential oil combinations) for different occasions. For instance, use citrus or peppermint for a morning aftershave that will help wake the senses and get the morning off to a fresh start. Or use a bit of lavender for a pre-bed spray that will help with relaxation and sleep.
Because these aftershave sprays are such a hit with my husband, I’ve been making them for some of the other guys in my life now too. They make a great gift for birthdays, father’s day or even the holiday season.
