If you are blending for home use on a small scale, add 15-20 drops of essential oils to 100ml of Aftershave Balm base.
We recommend using up to 3% essential oils in the Aftershave Balm if you are customising; commonly, most blends will be at most 1% essential oil. You can also add other active ingredients (see our active ingredients section) to further customise the base.
It is best to create professional blends by blending in a mixing bowl and gradually adding and stirring your preferred combination of oils and actives.
You can add unlimited levels of carrier oils to the base; the more you add, the more you will change the composition of the base.
Fragrance oils (as opposed to essential oils) can also be used in our bases; although we only use natural essential oils, we do not sell synthetic Fragrance Oils.
Remember, shaving can be a very sensitive experience for many men and teenagers; using the appropriate essential oils is crucial to an effective blend
