For the Guys | DIY After Shave with Essential Oils

August 11, 2015·

So many people ask me, “Does your husband use oils?” And the answer is, “YES!” Now, of course I definitely use them more than he does… BUT, over the last year, he’s really grown to love them and use them in so many different ways.

One of the best ways to use oils for men is in DIY products like cologne, lotions, and after shave! I made this after shave for John for Father’s Day and he loves it. I thought it would be the perfect DIY recipe to share with you guys this week!

It’s REALLY easy and takes less than 2 minutes to make. Check it out!

You could totally substitute Cypress or Geranium or even Valor for any of the other ones. The oils I chose are great for the skin, but also smell amazing!

In your glass spray bottle, add in about 20-30 drops of Vitamin E oil. Then, add in 15 drops of Mister, 10 drops of Lavender, and 10 drops of Cedarwood. Again, you could totally substitute other oils… these are just the ones I really love for the after shave!

Then, fill the rest of the spray bottle with witch hazel. Shake well and voila! You’re done! 🙂

This makes a great gift for the man in your life… your dad, your significant other, brother, or hubby! My husband uses this recipe and loves it.

What do you think? Will you try to make this recipe? Have you made after shave before? Do you have oily men in your life?
