  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir well.
  • The mixture should hold together when squeezed without crumbling, like wet sand. If needed, spray or drop small amounts of water into the mix until you reach the right consistency.
  • Push mixture into silicon molds, greased muffin tins, or small plastic containers. 
  • Set aside to dry for 24 hours. When dry, remove and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or the freezer for 2 months.
  • Place 1-2 melts on the floor of the shower and allow them to dissolve in the hot water. Inhale the menthol steam.
