1 teaspoon of dried mint or two sprigs of fresh mint
1 cup witch hazel
1/4 cup of lemon juice

2. Crush the mint between two spoons to bruise it and combine it with cucumber juice and the other liquids. Microwave the mixture on low medium power for 1 minute, then let sit and cool for 30 minutes.

3. Strain and store in a tightly capped bottle or plastic pump style atomizer. Keep the aftershave in the fridge in the hottest months for an extra refreshing splash.

Try replacing the isopropyl alcohol with an equal quantity of vodka for a different flavor. One tablespoon of glycerin will further soften the drying effect of this aftershave.
