If there is a male shaver in your life why not make your own Bay Rum aftershave for him. This one not only smells good but it will help tone the skin after shaving and it is anti-microbial so any nicks he gets while shaving won’t get infected. It has witch hazel, spices and rum and it smells really nice.
Make it for no reason or make it as a gift, I have a funny feeling you will be making it again as soon as the first batch is gone. The aftershave needs to sit and steep for 4 to 6 weeks so plan ahead. The recipe makes about 2 cups. Learning Herbs shares this recipe. Once the aftershave is done you need to keep it in a dark-colored bottle.
