It’s hard to capture just how neat these look. They came double bagged and when I removed them from the outer bag, I was hit with that sharp and refreshing smell. I can’t believe how strong this little bag is, especially through plastic! The coolest thing is after I replaced the bag inside of the outer bag and put them away with my supplies, I slowly became aware of an odd sensation in my hand. With Fibro I tend to have odd sensations and am super sensitive, so it’s not a surprising event. However, this isn’t a common sensation for me. It dawned on me that I was mildly tingling from the little bit of menthol residue that came through the inner bag! Whoa!! Now I’m even more excited about making a lotion with the crystals.
