|I have felt so bad for Andee since she sprained her ankle. She hobbles around here doing what she can without her ankle paining her. 🙁 I decided to make a menthol cream to give her some relief. This butter also makes a great way to start spring. I wanted a butter that would hold its shape well in the jar but could easily and gently be rubbed into the skin. A gentle massage really helps ease muscle tension. The menthol in the butter is extremely light. This butter will not force anyone to pick it up with a nine foot pole. (Not even Mr. Grinch.) I didn’t want such a strong cooling affect that would compel the wearer to wash it off their skin. Instead, I wanted a product that would make anyone willing to use, even if they are not part of the Mint Fan Club. Let’s head to the kitchen to make this Spring Relief Menthol Butter.
Collect Needed Materials:
Weigh everything except the Menthol Crystals into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Add Menthol Crystals. Stir occasionally as the mixture cools down. When the mixture is cool, cream the oils together as you would cream butter and sugar together. Scoop the mixture into containers and enjoy!
