HOW TO USE IT

The crystals will easily dissolve in essential oils or alcohol.
 
They will also dissolve in water or vegetable oils if heated to their melting point of 44°C but be very careful as when they melt, they will suddenly release their powerful smell and this can be irritating to the eyes if you are looking over the pan.
 
The crystals are very concentrated so only small amounts are needed.
 
Skin Care
Add to foot sprays to cool and refresh the feet, or cooling body products such as after sun lotions and gels that will be refreshing and invigorating whilst offering a degree of pain relief.
Very stimulating and soothing at the same time when used in shaving oils and after shave balms, creams and gels.
 
The anti irritant qualities make them useful in anti-itch creams and balms.
 
Hair Care
Add small amounts to shampoos for a zingy, tingly effect that will increase the circulation in the scalp.
 
Other
Can also be used to help relieve muscular aches and pains when added to massage balms, creams and gels or compresses.

CAUTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS

As they are so concentrated, only a small amount of crystals are needed. Take care if adding them to anything warm or hot and the sudden release of the vapour could make the eyes sting.

TRADITIONAL USE

Menthol crystals did not exist in ancient times but peppermint leaves were often chewed to release the menthol content.

Menthol was first isolated from the plants in 1771 by a German chemist and by the end of the century, menthol was already in mass production.
