Menthol Crystals are cooling, refreshing and have a pleasantly strong minty aroma.

Menthol crystals are naturally produced through Peppermint (Mentha arvensis) essential oil extraction. Menthol is the solid constituent of this oil which gives the oil its characteristic odour. Menthol is obtained by subjecting the distilled oil of Mentha arvensis oil to a temperature of -22°C, with the aid of a freezing mixture, the menthol crystallizes out in satiny crystals and the liquid 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 44°C.This product is intended for external use only
