Menthol Crystals 100% Natural - 2oz
Menthol Crystals are clear, colorless, crystals that are a natural by-product of steam distilled peppermint essential oil (Mentha arvensis). Menthol is the chief constituent of mint oil and is responsible for its distinctive odor and taste and the cooling sensation it produces when applied to the skin. In ointments, liniments and solutions, menthol crystals are typically added in strengths ranging from 0.5 to 5% (always start with less). Menthol crystals are cooling, refreshing, and have an extremely strong, minty aroma. They are often used in cosmetics, salves, balms, medicated creams, throat lozenges, toothpaste, mouthwash, gum, foot sprays and soaks, pain relief liniments and more. Menthol crystals are helpful to help relieve muscular aches and pains, coughing, congestion, the flu, and upper respiratory problems. Since Menthol crystals are so concentrated, only a tiny amount is needed! Please use caution when first using. Cautions: - Not to be used in or near the eyes. - For external use ONLY - Keep away from children and avoid during pregnancy.

A Great MentholJan 21, 2013
This may sound strange, but I purchased these as a replacement for some menthol crystals we purchased years ago. Beleive it or not, we make menthol tobacco for cigarettes with them. We started rolling our own smokes years ago as the price of premade cigarettes skyrocketed with added federal taxes. You can purchase prementholated loose tobacco, but I smoke so little it wasn't practical. My husband doesn't like the menthol. If you take loose tobacco and add just a tiny amount of crystals (to your own taste, a little goes a long way) in a microwave container with a loose fitting lid then microwave for about 20 seconds, you get wonderful menthol tobacco. Much better than any branded cigarette that you could think to buy. My husband and I are both quitting. I am down to just having one now and then when the mood strikes me. This is a great product for those thrifty minded individuals like me.
love these...May 14, 2014
This was the 2nd time I purchased Menthol Crystals... first time from this seller and I will definitely be buying again. In fact, I have 2 other people who will potentially be buying some as well. I use them for my baths. Especially with the heatwave, we're currently having, helps me feel cool afterwards. I use them regularly, so I'm getting use to them and it takes more to have an affect on me but typically, if you don't use them often, a very small amount goes a long way.
