Menthol Crystals are derived from the Mentha Arvensis Botanica, also known as Mint, Corn Mint, Wild Mint, and Japanese Mint. Menthol Crystals are a solid constituent of Mint Oil and have a waxy consistency. The Mint Essential Oil is derived from the Mint leaf through the process of distillation. This Mint Essential Oil is then frozen at a temperature of -22 degrees Celsius. The process of freezing the Essential Oil causes it to crystalise, forming Menthol Crystals.

As they are directly obtained from Mint Essential Oil, Menthol Crystals share the same vast benefits of the Oil. However, Menthol Crystals are extremely concentrated, and therefore only small amounts of the Crystals are needed for effective applications and uses.
