How much to a standard 16 oz bottle? Do they dissolve on their on their own or does it take heat?

I have a bottle of witch hazel I added bay rum aftershave to.

How much does it take? Personal preference kinda like put some crystals in and give a shake, test, add more if not cold enough. I like mine like liquid nitrogen. Makes the eyes water a little.

Forgot to add the alcohol melts the crystals. No heat needed

I've never bothered to add menthol to anything, but I do enjoy the bracing shock of Osage Rub.

Where does one buy these menthol crystals? This sounds interesting to me.

Oh,

The concoctions we can think of to put in our shaving mug. The possibilities are endless. This morning I combined 4 different products. It was heaven!

How about when you're at work & you catch a whiff of that wonderful smell. Sometimes my face just tingles! I have to faceturbate just thinking about it!

Got some Osage and Witch hazel and menthol splash from Bath and Body Works a long time ago. Haven't used it yet.

BTW, Buy 2 get 1 C.O. Bigelow (Proraso) shave cream tubes at B&BW.
