spiced aftershave

Here’s one for you, fella! Wear this invigorating formula as a cologne or splash on after shaving to help close pores and leave a light, spicy fragrance.

2 whole cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon whole, dried juniper berries
6 whole, dried bay leaves
1 ½ cups rum

Layer the first four ingredients in a mason jar with lid. Cover with the rum and replace the lid on the jar. Set aside for 2 to 4 weeks, or until the desired scent has developed. Strain, reserving the liquid in a clean bottle.
