Crystallized quick frozen (Cold extracted)
Food and cosmetic use.
Our certified organic Menthol crystals are fair trade certified! These carefully crafted crystals are a 100% natural product that originate from cornmint (Mentha arvensis) essential oil extraction. Menthol crystals are cooling, refreshing, and have a pleasantly strong minty aroma. They are often used in cosmetics, salves, balms, medicated creams, throat lozenges, toothpaste, mouthwash, gum, foot sprays, pain relief, shampoos, conditioners, linaments, shaving creams, oral or throat sprays, compresses, medicated oils, and cooling gels. Since Menthol crystals are so concentrated, only a very small amount is needed within products.
