10 DIY: RUM SPICE AFTERSHAVE

brush, product, cosmetics,(prices vary on what items you have & what you may need to create this DIY)

What You'll Need:

Small saucepan
Fine grater or zester
Zest of one orange
1 cup witch hazel
1/2 cup water
2 to 3 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger (optional)
Small sprig of rosemary (optional)
Strainer
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 ounces rum
Small glass bottle
Wine cork

Directions:

Gather the ingredients for making the rum spice aftershave. You can use your favorite kind of rum, and bay leaves will only cost a few dollars at your local grocery store. Measure and add the witch hazel and water to a small saucepan, which creates a nice base for the aftershave that's also soothing for your favorite guy's skin.

Place the saucepan over low heat, and zest the orange over the saucepan using a fine grater or zester. You can also use orange peels by cutting away the orange skin from the white pith and adding it to the pan. Oil from the orange peel is naturally antibacterial and gives the aftershave a lovely scent. After adding, cover the saucepan and let warm for an hour, which allows the scents to infuse, creating a really fragrant base.

Turn off the heat and add the vanilla and rum to the aftershave. Give things a stir, and let come to room temperature before the next step.

While you're waiting, select a glass bottle to use for holding the aftershave. If it doesn't have a screw-on top, then cut a wine cork in half using a sharp knife and carefully cut and angle the base until it fits snugly in the top of the bottle.

Strain the aftershave, and use a funnel to pour into the bottle. Your rum-spice aftershave is all set for giving to the main man in your life!

Makes 8 ounces of aftershave.
