Skin-Softening Aftershave

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999) –

We show off more leg in summer than any other time, and we want those legs to be smooth and soft. The ingredients in this great-smelling aftershave lotion are antiseptic, hydrating, and softening, without any alcohol or harmful chemicals: a truly elegant formula. This would make a great gift idea for Father’s Day, since it works beautifully on the face, as well.


* 2 cups witch hazel extract
* 2 ounces rose water
* 2 ounces aloe vera gel
* 1/2 to 1 ounce glycerin (use the vegetable-based kind if you are concerned about animal products)
* 5 drops essential oil of peppermint
* 5 drops essential oil of eucalyptus
* 1 drop myrrh tincture

1. Put all the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid, shaking thoroughly to blend.

2. Pat onto skin after shaving.

Makes 2 1/2 cups. This should keep for 6 months, but if you see any signs of mold, discard it.

HELPFUL HINTS: Please be sure to use pure essential oils, and consult a health professional if you are pregnant or have a serious medical condition before using them.
