What are Menthol Crystals used for?
Menthol Crystals have a powerful antiseptic effect and are highly refreshing and cooling. They purify the air, increase attention, concentration and ease breathing. They work well in study, meditation, flu, colds and in work groups. For asthma patients, they can be a relief.
In the sauna, dissolve before the sauna, skin care creams, dissolve in essential oils so that they are easily used in aromatherapy treatments.
Use 1: in the sauna
First pour on ice or water and then put a few crystals on the stove in a scoop of ice. Let them melt on the stove.
Use 2: dissolve for the sauna
The crystals can also be dissolved in alcohol or lukewarm water before use. A solution of 2 to 10% is the most convenient. Pay attention to the fire hazard, so always add water or ice before pouring with alcohol. Our guideline for mixing is to apply 25 ml (alcohol incl. Menthol crystals) to 5 liters of water. You can adjust this amount as needed.
Use 3: in creams
You can put a small amount of crystals in an ointment to promote blood flow. You can also add menthol as an alcoholic solution in itch-relieving creams.
Use 4: dissolve in essential oils
Dissolve the crystals in essential oils such as Eucalyptus oil or Lavender oil to be able to use the refreshing effect of the menthol in combination with another scent in the sauna.
