Hello All. I've been using USB on and off and really do like using it. But its missing menthol which is what I really enjoy in aftershaves. Does anyone have tips as to how i can dissolve menthol crystals in my USB? There are vids online on how to make whipped shea butter but not one video shows how to add menthol crystals. Any help is appreciated. Thanks for chiming in and have a great day!

I'd recommend using a liquified protect to mix menthol in to USB, such as M-Bomb from The Shave Den. Otherwise, you could try to dissolve the crystals in alcohol and mix a small amount of USB with it to see if they'll blend OK. You may need to make an emulsion of the two.

Thanks, I have the M-bomb but use it for my shaving creams. But I eventually solved the problem by using a double boiler and melted the USB with a carrier oil like Apricot Kernel oil. Along with that I just added my EO's, menthol crystals and voila!
