ONE: In a large glass bowl, combine Polysorbate 20, Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil and Orange Valencia Essential Oil. Mixing the Polysorbate 20 with the fragrances oils first is important because it keeps the oils from separating from the rest of the mixture. Mix well.
TWO: Add the Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera Liquid, Isopropyl Alcohol, Glycerin and Rum (optional). Mix well.
**NOTE: If you plan on selling your aftershave, leave the rum out. Even though you can’t drink it, you wouldn’t want to run afoul of liquor distribution laws.
THREE: Pour into 8 oz. bottles. Your aftershave is ready to use!
