Mentha arvensis crystallis

Menthol crystals make a wonderful addition to salves and ointments. Menthol is an organic compound found in mint family plants; menthol crystals can either be derived from these plants, or made synthetically. Menthol lends a cooling, soothing feel to salves and ointments. It can help clear congestion and ease breathing, and is a key ingredient in vapor rubs. It is also included in many topical pain relief products, since its counter-irritant effect distracts the body’s pain response and so reduces the sensation of pain. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic action, making it helpful in products for sore or tense muscles. Menthol can also promote calm through its aromatherapeutic effect.
