This natural aftershave is a beautiful amber color with an invigorating, spicy smell that many men enjoy in the morning. In the summertime, I like to pour this into a spritzer bottle and refrigerate it. When I need a burst of icy mist to revive myself after gardening, I spray this on the back of my neck, arms, and legs.
1 drop bergamot oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil
1 ounce benzoin tincture*
1 quart water
1/2 pint unscented alcohol (rubbing or vodka)
Gently combine all ingredients and pour into individual glass bottles. Seal tightly.
To Use: Spritz or splash on face after shaving to close pores and revive skin. Also great for soothing sun burn.
*Benzoin tincture can be purchased at the local drug store. It is used to soothe irritated skin and is often a treatment for canker sores.
