Rating: These are great menthol crystals. Good price too; used to buy them from Amazon but this is half the price. I use them primarily in shower steamers that sell like crazy. I used to grind them in a mortar and pestle then dissolve them in 99% alcohol. It took a long time to dissolve this way, then I learned I could put them in the microwave in a little carrier oil or the alcohol, then they dissolved and dispersed really well. Don’t make shower steamers without them! Menthol helps boost and release other essential oils added to steamers
Rating: This product is absolutely amazingly fresh and strong smelling and wonderful. I put it in conditioner, body butter, hair butter, lotion, hair spray and foot cream. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Will continue to buy Menthol because it's good for everything to even use an an ant spray. Thanks ND!

Rating: I bought these just for fun. I had no reason other than I just wanted to see what they were like haha. They smell amazing! I put a couple crystals in my essential oil diffuser with some lemon EO and it made the whole kitchen smell clean and fresh. Also, a few crystals in a pop bottle cap sitting in places where ants come in your house will completely keep the ants away.

By:Danielle, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2013
Rating: Very strong scent, excellent product!! I use this in foot creams, and foot scrubs, also have now put it in shower gels. Took some real experimenting to get the proper measurements down, this stuff is very strong and broke the body wash base down a few times. Still managed to use them though!! No wasting here!!

Rating: I use it at 3% in a foot cream for really damaged feet in the oil phase. I should say that I apply this cream daily Before I was not able to stay on my feet more than 1 hour .My feet was burning. Since 3 days with this cream twice a day ,they are better and better everyday.
Will like to get a recipe for a shower gel so I could also use it in.
Rating: These are great when used in a muscle rub. Wonderful strength
By:Crystal, Blackie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Sep-2009
Rating: WOW, such a powerful scent. Amazing. I have actually mixed it in with a shower gel, and the results were excellent. Very cooling for the whole body. Also made a foot scrub with it. Leaves your feet feeling very refreshed.
Rating: We've found these particularly effective in a foot bath, along with some epsom salts and peppermint e.o. REALLY strongly scented and excellent value for the money.

Rating: My mother-in-law gets really bad arthritis and loves it when I make a cooling spritz for her (by dissolving menthol crystals in denat. alcohol, then blending that solution with distilled or peppermint floral water). However, people should be warned that this is the most invasive-smelling stuff ever. I double-bagged the crystals with Ziplocs and put them in my soaping box, and EVERYTHING, including my beeswax, cocoa butter, and all my powders absorbed the menthol smell, despite being separated and sealed within their own Ziploc bags. Wicked stuff, and it works wonders, but my advice is to store it at the opposite end of your home, away from anything you don't want smelling minty-fresh.
