How do you make a salve? Answered
Origins used to make a cream called "Leg Lifts." It's loaded with menthol, Eucalyptus and a bunch of other stuff that makes your skin tingle. I would use it after really long bike rides and it was like a cooling chemical massage. They have now stopped making it and no more is available so I was hoping to reverse engineer it.
It was a smooth cream the consistency of ketchup or a heavy hair conditioner. I think I can work out the things that make your skin tingle, but I have no idea what to use for the suspension medium. I searched for foot creams and salves and what I found didn't seem like a good fit.
I figure once I come up with a suspension medium, I can just add powdered menthol, eucalyptus, tea tree oils and such until I get something that does the job.
What could I use for this suspension medium? It has to be pH balanced, hypoallergenic and edible.
