Menthol crystals are natural or synthetic compounds that are derived from the oil of mint plants, particularly peppermint (Mentha piperita) or corn mint (Mentha arvensis). They are solid, colorless, and possess a strong, refreshing odor similar to mint.
Menthol crystals have a high melting point of around 42-44 degrees Celsius (107-111 degrees Fahrenheit), which means they are solid at room temperature but easily melt upon contact with warm surfaces or when heated. This property makes them versatile and easy to work with in different applications.
Perfect for creating extra strong shower steamers.
