Minty Fresh: Menthol Crystals

      Comments Off on Minty Fresh: Menthol Crystals

As their name implies Menthol Crystals are crystals derived from menthol (mint). As the solid constituent of mint oil, Menthol Crystals share many of the Mint Oil’s characteristics, including its signature scent. Once the essential Mint Oil is created, through a process of distillation of the mint leaf, this oil is frozen at a temperature of -22 degrees Celsius. This process causes the menthol to crystalise. Due to the crystals being highly concentrated, only a small amount is customarily needed in application of its many uses. Some of these uses are: 

  • For Your Skin: Menthol Crystals can be added to carrier oils and applied topically to the skin to reduce dryness and itchiness. It is also effective in treating skin irritations and relieving the pain associated with sunburn.
