I have read a few posts about adding menthol crystals to achieve the cooling effect of krampers frostbite or fine snakebite to a favorite a/s.

i understand the amount to include is ymmv by starting with smaller quantities and alcohol a/s mixes better, but has anyone tried adding it to witch hazel that has no alcohol in it?  Does it still dissolve and mix?

also, is there any a/s that it mixes best with based on experience, or would all be the same?

thanks!

One of the other forums has a market that sells a very nice menthol additive that is in a liquid. Highly suggested because you have nice control and you can really add as much as you want.

I bought the crystals and just added a couple at a time until it reached a level I liked. Pretty easy and inexpensive to do.

I actually just purchased some of these crystals as well as a resupply of the liquid Menthol that was mentioned earlier in the thread. As a Menthol fan I found myself using the liquid almost everyday in my balms as well as soaps. Really looking forward to getting the crystals to add to a couple splashes I have.

I've done it with menthol crystals. Very cheap to buy on eBay, seeing as you only need about 0.5-1g for a 100mL bottle.

I've done it with Brut and L'occitane Verdon aftershaves, too. Lovely.
