I’ve read about plenty of guys (and work with one, too) who make their own aftershave. While I’m intrigued about concocting my own homemade bay rum, I have neither the skill nor the time for that endeavor.** However, there is one DIY shave product that I heartily endorse because it’s cheap, easy and it works really well: mentholated witch hazel.* Since I’m already a big fan of using witch hazel in my post shave routine, adding some crushed menthol crystals only makes it better – especially in the sweltering hot summer.** Here’s just how cheap and easy it is:
Get any cheap, generic witch hazel – in my experience, they’re about the same, but the T.N. Dickinson’s from Target is my favorite. Then head over to eBay and buy a bag of menthol crystals. The smallest quantity is more than enough, and should set you back only a few bucks.
Next, crush a tablespoon (or more, if you really want to freeze your face off). The finer the better; I used a mortar and pestle, but it doesn’t really matter. Pour the powder into the bottle and shake vigorously.

If you’re a nerd like me, you can find an old-fashioned label online and glue it to your bottle (I picked up a cheap one from American Science & Surplus (http://www.sciplus.com/p/RETRO-BOTTLE_44732)).
The end result of mentholated witch hazel is a chilling after shave experience. Icier than anything, including Osage Rub (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001711FMI/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001711FMI&linkCode=as2&tag=mansshablo-20)http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mansshablo-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001711FMI, on the market. You can experiment with potency, and you can add these crystals to other aftershaves and shampoos, too. The effect can last quite a while.
