    How to make home made aftershaves

    Some formulas to try out


    Hi guys. I'm trying to formulate a homemade alcohol-based aftershave. Ofcourse, once I get a working formula, I'll make it available here. Here's what I was thinking of doing:

    1) Alcohol as an astringent
    2) Mint/Sage for their antiseptic properties, scent and feel they'd give to the skin (I'd dissolve them in alcohol and strain out the particles)
    3) Aloe vera gel (to soothe the skin)

    I'll play around with ingredient ratios, but I wanted to see if you guys knew how the Aloe would blend into the alcohol? Does it dissolve or does it separate from the mixture? What's the best way to blend it so it stays uniform?
