Mix with On The Mend Oil
Frosted is like a power boosted for your muscle massage, add a few drops to On The Mend Oil to dose up spots that need extra attention. The addition of CBD to our potent bottle of Frosted is important as an added anti-inflammatory benefit to help reduce swelling an inflammation in a targeted area.

Add to a spray bottle with filtered water
Keep a spray bottle at your desk (like this one!) with 6-12 drops of Frosted to refresh yourself throughout the day, or take it with you to hot yoga to help regulate your skin’s surface temperature. The cooling sensation from the peppermint oil will help cool you down and leave you feeling refreshed and revived!
Apply to back of neck or scalp for headache relief
Just a couple of drops on your fingers applied to tension points. Massage gently and feel the tingly relief wash over you.
The cooling sensation that you feel is due to the high quality menthol in the mint oils, which is a natural pain reliever known as an “analgesic.” This compound activates pain receptors in your skin to relieve pain that you’re feeling, without the horrible side effects of over the counter or prescribed medications. Take that, migraines!
