 Information @ a glance   


  • Menthol crystals are produced through mint essential oil (mentha arvensis) extraction, the oil is quick frozen and the menthol crystallizes out.
  • The crystals are crystalline in form, more oblong, similar to rock crystals. They are clear to white with a cool minty fresh odor. Soluble in alcohol and oils.
  • Widely used in many applications such as: oral healthcare (toothpastes, mouthwashes) due to its minty taste and cooling properties; food flavour in confectionery products; flavour for beverages; over the counter treatments such as decongestants, analgesics and as a flavour in some cigarette brands.
  • Menthol crystals are great inhalants by themselves and are easily combined into recipes. Add several drops to a bowl of hot, steamy water and carefully inhale the soothing vapors through the mouth and nose for stuffiness and bronchitis.
  • Essential oil of partially dried leaves of Mentha arvensis was extracted by steam distillation method. From this essential oil, menthol crystals were prepared by chilling at different temperatures and yield of both essential oil and menthol crystals was 2.4 and 52.3%, respectively.
  • The menthol crystallization process using menthe oil is rather simple, and consists of a cascade crystallization.
