Stop buying Aftershave and make your own face saving, moisturizing Bay Rum! The classic smell of all things manly…in a good way. Also, a great conversation starter once the ladies start to flock. So sit back and enjoy our video tutorial from our very own DIY guy, Douglas Smythe! 

What you will need:

1  Mason Jar with Lid
   Coffee Filters
4oz Rum
8oz Witch Hazel
30 drops Neem Oil (optional)
1 oz Rose Water (optional)
1 oz Glycerin
15 Bay Leaves-Pimenta Racemosa (not the seasoning in your cupboard- TIP: Google “Bay Rum Leaves, Pimenta Racemosa” and you will find them.)

[If you are having trouble finding Bay Leaves you may substitute Bay Oil instead. Use .25 ounces.]

1tbs Allspice Berries
1tsp Dried or Fresh Ginger
1 Cinamon Stick
2 Vanilla Beans
1tsp Dried or Fresh Orange Zest

[As should be used within 6 weeks. To extend life add 12 drops grapefruit seed  extract and or Vitamin E (1/4 tsp)
