DIY Spicy Men’s Cologne

For a while now I have been on the lookout for a cologne for my hubby.  I just was not pleased with the cologne that I found in the store, plus I have concerns about the ingredients. I am a true believer in the emotional and well being benefits of essential oils.  Plus I avoid products with artificial {man made} fragrance at all cost.  I love to smell my hubby with this light, natural, spicy and manly scent.
DIY Spicy Men’s Cologne
Ingredients:
1 Cup of Plain Vodka
1 Cup of Witch Hazel
1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Glycerin
Blend a drop or two of each of the following Essential Oils;
Rosemary
Peppermint
Cinnamon
Clove
Orange
Lemon
Spearmint
Instructions:
Combine all of the ingredients and vigorously shake in a mason jar with lid.  Wha-La done.
How to Use:
Dab a small amount behind each ear every morning, or as desired.
Storage:
Store in a small bottle with a tight fitting lid, use within six months.
Tips:
  • I love to dab a small amount of organic extract behind my ears as a natural perfume.
  • A woodsy or citrusy aroma which will retains its scent for hours without becoming too powerful, and is perfect for men to use as a cologne.
  • Vodka is a wonderful carrier oil.  Use high quality 80 to 100 proof vodka is virtually odorless, making it a good choice for an essential oil carrier in homemade natural perfumes.
  • Sandalwood essential oil alone makes a awesome men’s cologne. Add about 10 drops to the vodka, witch hazel and vegetable glycerin mixer.
I hope that you enjoy my easy homemade recipes to make your own natural and organic skincare products.
Smiles, Paula
