How to Make Aftershave With Essential Oils

“When I was a boy, I thought that scent was contained in dewdrops on flowers and if I got up very early in the morning, I could collect it and make perfume.” – Oscar De La Renta

Creating a natural aftershave for your husband or partner is a great way to personalize an essential oil blend that they can enjoy. This aftershave recipe uses a three percent concentration of essential oils along with other ingredients. Now it calls for alcohol which means it’s intended for home use only as special licensing is required for reselling commercial products that contain alcohol. You are going to want to check with your local and state licensing regulations for more information regarding this. You can substitute the alcohol and use witch hazel if you prefer, but I don’t recommend witch hazel because it just doesn’t blend well with the other oils ingredients and it just doesn’t look pretty in your atomizer or your spray bottle. Here are the supplies you will need to make your all-natural aftershave at home:

How To Make Aftershave With Essential Oils Aroma Hutone ounce glass dark bottle or atomizer (or if you have a pretty perfume bottle)
glass stir rod
glass bowl
2 tablespoons alcohol  or witch hazel
18 drops of glycerin (or fractionated coconut oil)
18 drops of the essential oil blend
3 drops of vitamin e oil


How To Make Aftershave With Essential Oils:

In a small glass bowl add up to 18 drops of essential oil starting with your base note followed by your middle note and your top note. Be sure to check the fragrance as you add each drop stirring with a glass rod to blend. Add in your glycerin and your vitamin e oil. If you don’t have glycerin to use as a fixative which is what’s going to hold the scent to the skin longer you can substitute fractionated coconut oil instead. Add your blend to a dark glass bottle or your perfume bottle fill the rest of the bottle with alcohol or witch hazel. Once you’re finished, add it to your spray bottle shake it up and use it as normal.

One of the ingredients in our recipe was basil and is found in numerous men’s fragrances such as Eau Sauvage by Dior and Eau Pour Homme by Armani – my favorite!

Some of the most popular essential oils for men’s aftershaves include bay, carrot, roman chamomile, cypress, frankincense, juniper berry, palmarosa, patchouli, rosemary, tea tree, sage, and vetiver. For this recipe, I have chosen three essentials. I’m going to be adding six drops of each oil – lime essential oil, basil essential oil, and fir balsam essential oil.


Basil essential oilBasil Essential Oil

Basil is an herbaceous and refreshing plant originally from India which found its way to Europe along the spice routes. It’s become a vital part of both Mediterranean and cooking. All nations agree that basil is a regal plant it takes its name from the Greek word meaning “kingly and royal.” In Romania, it has romantic undertones as a prospective groom accepts a spree of basil from his fiancee when he becomes engaged. The aromatic note of basil is bright, abrasive, and peppery. It adds a touch of sunshine and a blend, especially for floral and citrus fragrances. Here are a few more combinations of blends to try in your aftershave. Brawny man – this one is a basil essential oil, fir balsam essential oil, and helichrysum essential oil. Kona man is black pepper essential oil, coriander essential oil, and sandalwood essential oil. Confident man – this one contains cardamon essential oil, vetiver essential oil, and ylang-ylang essential oil.
