Homemade Aftershave Balm

Ever since I started posting recipes for homemade beauty products I focused on women’s products.

Until now.

The following recipe of an aftershave balm is for both women and men.
It is a soothing blend which balances the skin after shaving.

Aftershave balm – for men

Jojoba oil – 30 ml
Cathine (Cathinone) extract (available in herbal pharmacies)
essential oils of Vetiver, Bergamot and Palmarosa (1-2 drops of each).

Mix everything and leave aside for several days before use.
Apply 2-3 drops after shaking it a bit after shaving. It‘s a little oily, very good for your skin care.


Aftershave balm – for women

Jojoba oil – 30 ml
Cathine (Cathinone) extract
essential oils of Rosewood, Lavender and/or Geranium (1-2 drops of each)

Mix everything and leave aside for several days before use.
Shake it and apply on your legs, under arm pits, etc. after shaving a few drops at a time.
