My Favorite Recipe for Essential Oil Aftershave
- 4 ml jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil
- 5 drops cypress essential oil
- 10 drops bergamot essential oil
- 6 drops orange essential oil
- 10 drops sandalwood essential oil
- 10 ml amber roll-on bottle
Add the carrier oil to your amber roll-on bottle. Add each oil directly to the bottle one drop at a time.
Close the lid and shake vigorously to combine all the oils. Test the aftershave on a small patch of skin. You can adjust the strength of the mixture by adding more carrier oil or a few extra drops of your favorite essential oil scents.
When you are satisfied with the mixture, close the bottle and store in a dark, cool place.
If you don’t have these oils in your collection and want to keep costs low, Rocky Mountain Oils offers the Citrus Passion and Blend of Sandalwood oil blends that will create a rich-smelling aftershave when added to a carrier oil like jojoba oil or coconut oil.
