Menthol Crystals are cooling, refreshing, and have a pleasantly strong minty aroma. Menthol Crystals are excellent for relieving coughing, congestion, the flu, and upper respiratory problems. Since Menthol crystals are so concentrated, only a very small amount is needed.
Menthol Crystals are naturally produced through Mint (Mentha arvensis) essential oil extraction. Menthol is the solid constituent of oil of mint and was formerly known as peppermint camphor. Menthol is obtained by subjecting the distilled oil of Mentha arvensis oil to a temperature of -22° C, (-7.6° F.)
By the aid of a freezing mixture, the menthol crystallizes out in satiny crystals and the mother liquor is removed while the low temperature is maintained. They dissolve readily into alcohol or essential oils, and they can also be dissolved into water or oil at their melting point of 111.2 degrees F.
The easiest way to use Menthol Crystals is by putting a Tablespoon in the microwave for 1 minute and then placing them in the shower, sauna, steam room, in the bedroom at night or on the floor under a massage table head rest while resting on your stomach. Menthol Crystals can be reused a few times so a jar will last a long time.
