No more painOct 29, 2011
I had tendonitis and was looking for something to ease the pain that wasn't like greasy products that are for sale, and I found on the Internet that by mixing menthol crystals and alcohol you would get a solution that would take pain away. I tried it and it was like a miracle. I pour some on a towel and just leave it on over the aching part for a while and in a few minutes the pain is gone.

Great for bugs!Nov 17, 2012
By Liane Blanco
Burning menthol crystals is a great way to reduce the dust mites in your house. It also repels bugs of every kind - one whiff of this stuff and they run for their lives! I put a tablespoon or two in a wax burner and vaporize each room for an hour or two. Works wonders, and clears your sinuses too!

Just what I neededJan 01, 2013
""the trouble with stupid is that there is so much of it!"~Elizabeth Clark"
I bought this item to make my own sinus clearing concoction and it was just what I needed. The crystals dissolved in the camphor and eucalyptus and made a strong sinus clearing mix minus the deadly chemicals used in commercial brands. I use cotton facial pads layered with the menthol and then soaked with the camphor and eucalyptus oils in a small lidded container to avoid the oils evaporating so fast. Just NEVER use bare hands to sprinkle the menthol, wear gloves to avoid accidently ingesting it or getting it in your eyes.

Watch out!!Mar 28, 2012
By StretchiE Beast
EXTREMELY POTENT!! Use very little. I was using these for congestion in an inhailer and should have known better when the menthol took over the whole upstairs...but still I stuck my face in front of it and damn near burnt my nostrils away. Overall..they worked well!

Powerful--Use Sparingly!Oct 12, 2013
These menthol crystals are super strong! Use very sparingly and with caution until you realize how potent they are. If you have skin or smell sensitivity (I have both), I suggest wearing a mask and gloves for first time use. Handle them like fresh habaneros or jalapenos. Do not touch them and then your skin. You might experience eye watering or skin burning just like with hot peppers. I used a spoon and tweezers to avoid touching them.
My order arrived promptly and well packaged in a zip sandwich bag. My bag contained thin crystals, granules, and one large chunk. I carefully transferred the contents to a sterile jar and was able to reuse the label from the zip bag packaging.
I recommend that you first reduce whatever amount you think you need by at least ¾ since these crystals are super powerful. You can gradually add more. Remember that if your preparation is in a closed container it will get stronger as it sits and mixes with other ingredients. I used the crystals for diy sinus decongestant inhalers. I worked over a large bowl to catch any excess crystals. Afterwards, I wiped the bowl with a couple of clean handkerchiefs, which will be great to carry and use during cold/flu season.
I cannot emphasize how strong this product is and that it will get stronger with use. A little bit goes a very long way.
