    I have a small couple of ounce bottle and I just eyeball the 1/3 + 2/3 mix.

    I apply the oil before I prepare everything else. So - out of the shower, oil on the face, pre-heat the scuttle and soak the brush in it while I strop up the razor of the day. Build a lather in the scuttle and scrape the face. I do not re-apply the oil for each pass, I only use it on the first pass to soften the beard. The lather continues the softening process for the additional passes.

    Thanks for the recipe. I’ll definitely have to try this next time I make a batch of pre shave oil.
