    Default Aftershave Balm Recipe?

    I have been considering different aftershave balms and started wondering about making something myself.

    I thought something good for aftershave & good for my skin in general would be...
    * Witch Hazel
    * Glycerin
    * Vitamin E
    * Aloe
    * Scent (maybe just pour in a bottle of Aqua Velva?)

    I have 2 QUESTIONS...

    (1) Does anyone know of ONE place where I could buy these products in their pure form?

    (2) Would this be a good recipe? And has anyone else posted their own recipe's of aftershaves/balms they have made?

    I would buy an unscented face moisturizer (NOT body or hands versions, those would be too thick) and just add my favorite splash to it.

    I found this recipe last night and it looks promising...

    The recipe calls for...
    4 oz. Witch Hazel
    2 oz. sparkling mineral water
    1/2 oz vodka
    1/2 oz Glycerin
    10 drops of bergomot essential oil
    10 drops of clove essential oil
    10 drops of cinnamon essential oil

    I think the only changes I would make would be to add a little bit of Vitamin E oil and perhaps I would play around with what essential oils I used - perhaps trying some lemon, or lavender, or vetiver.

    Anyone try this recipe or one similar?
