Menthol Crystals are clear, colorless, crystals that are obtained from steam distilled peppermint oil. They possess a powerful peppermint aroma and give a cooling sensation to balms and rubs. Menthol Crystals are soluble in both oil and alcohol. Menthol Crystals are typically used at 5-20% in balms, liniments, ointments, and rubs to lend a cooling sensation. Menthol also acts as an analgesic by numbing the nerves after it cools. As an inhalant, Menthol Crystals can be added to chest rubs to help clear up congested respiratory passages. To preserve their potency, Menthol Crystals should be stored in well-sealed glass containers in a cool, dark location.
