Aftershave Lotion

Servings: Yield = 4 oz. | Time: 15 minutes active | Difficulty: Easy



  1. Combine the Beeswax, Coconut Oil or Grape Seed Oil, and vitamin E oil in a glass bowl.
  2. Melt the oils in the microwave or on the stovetop in a pan filled with an inch of simmering water (creating a double boiler). Heat until completely melted. The Beeswax will take the longest, so make sure to use pellets or grate finely. Remove from heat once completely melted.
  3. In a separate glass bowl, mix together the aloe vera gel, witch hazel, and Vegetable Glycerin.
  4. Whip the oil mixture with a handheld or stand electric mixer for a few seconds before slowly pouring the warmed aloe vera gel mixture into the oil mixture. Add essential oils, and whip for a few minutes until thickened and lotion-looking.
  5. Pour the lotion into a plastic bag. With scissors, cut off a corner of the bag just a tiny bit. Squeeze the lotion into the 4 oz. Blue Glass Bottle, and screw on the pump top.
