Menthol in its pure form appears as clear crystals when extracted from members of the Mentha genus. Field Mint (aka. Corn Mint/Pudina) was used in the production of this Menthol and is native to the temperate regions of the northern hemisphere. Menthol crystals quickly vaporizes when placed upon a hot charcoal and can be quite harsh. We recommend heating Menthol indirectly such as placing it in an oil warmer to help relieve congestion. Menthol has been used in flavoring food, drinks, cough medicines, creams and cigarettes around the world. Menthol is usually associated with the Air element and Mercury is thought to be its celestial body.
