Hi 
   I would like to make a very viscous and rich foot cream for people who have cold feet and hands. I have been researching raw materials but so far I can't find anything online. 
I do understand there are some essential oils that can work but I am looking for something that can give a warming sensation upon application. Is there anything out there? Appreciate all the help and thanks in advance.

  • Methyl Nicotinate gives an intense warming sensation, can be tricky to get hold of though

    Methyl Nicotinate will give 'warm' feeling but it is also a rubifacient (it will make your skin red). Personally my arm felt tingling and burning with  0.1% . 
    Glycerin only compositions will give a warming sensation as well, zeolites can provide slight warming. 

    Vanillyl Butyl Ether is also sold as a warming agent, it hasn't worked well for me in creams the feeling was lost.

    I have been doing the research on Vanilyl BE. Have been told that it doesn't work with every individual.
