Smell like a Cowboy… (How to make your own Bay Rum aftershave)

Make your own Bay Rum aftershave and smell like an Old West Texas Cowboy!

Makes a tad over 1/2 cup or about 4-5 oz.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of gin (prefered) or vodka   ( if you’re a teetotaler you can use witch hazel )
2 tablespoons jamaican rum    ( take a few gulps yourself… for medicinal purposes!)
2 dried bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon whole allspice
1 cinnamon stick and  1 small orange, zested      ( fine peel scrapings!)

Directions:
1. Mix everything together and pour into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid.
2. Place this jar in a dark and cool place for 2 weeks.
3. After 2 weeks, strain off the liquid using a coffee filter or very fine mesh screen and pour into a clean container.
4. Discard the zest and other remaining solids.

Use: Splash it on your face after shaving and I can guarantee you’ll have women flocking around you… of course the only women who remember this stuff are going on eighty years old now but I’m sure you can out run ’em if they’s using their walkers.

.Cautions and claims:

1- Do not use under arm pits, instead, just take a bath if you smell bad.

2- Using Bay Rum has been shown to increase the labido and story telling abilities in grandfathers.

3-  Not to be used by those who are married, thinking of becoming married or any male under the age of say…18.

4- Any claims of Bay Rum curing gout, lung wheezes, bullet wounds and bow legs has not been approved by the FDA. Nor will it ever be.

On a more serious note: Bay Rum is making a big comeback! It smells fresh and has an Island scent that women and Cowboys loved.
