No pictures yet guys but I did get an email from Phoenix Shaving that they are selling a pepper grinder (chill mill) and menthol crystals to be added to your favorite shave soap. The way it works is you add the crystals to the mill and shake. Then you grind about two revolutions of crystals on top of you favorite shave soap (or puck) let it dissolve for 1 minutes then use your brush to create what suppose to be an extreme menthol blast that might freeze your face (just kidding). Sounds like a fantastic way to cool off during the hot summer.

I tough about opening a thread about it as soon as I saw the email, but I was on phone!

I think that I might give it a try. there is a lot of soap that when using it I had wish that there were menthol in it!

I think that it is a nice way to get all the menthol soap you want in the world.

Thanks to Frances and her salt mill in the office!

now this could become a thing for lovers of menthol

I can think of a soap or two needing a twist of menthol to add a little sparkle.

menthol sublimates unless it is sealed so it will eventually all slowly dissolve away.  Though an interesting gadget for sure.

A salt mill with menthol instead of salt?

In  Spain, on a different path, this idea was explored several years ago.  Wink

Apparently Smythe found this thread, took a screen shot of my previous comment, found me on facebook, and sent the screenshot with 'keep it sealed'.  So that answers that.

That’s creepy...
Edit: I guess he probably can’t post here because he is a vendor, so it makes sense he would want to answer your question, and the only way to do that would be through social media like the book of faces. Plus you are a vendor too, so I guess it makes sense.

If it isn't air tight to begin with, and menthol sublimates, even if you "keep it sealed" the menthol is just going to disappear.  

Ergo, I'm assuming that the container is air tight?
