Menthol oil is distilled from natural Cornmint (also known as Japanese mint). Menthol has a higher menthol content than Peppermint. It is a natural extract but neither a complete essential oil nor highly purified. Menthol content is normally around 90%.
Like Peppermint, Menthol is a decent pain reliever for minor burns or insect bites.
It is also a common ingredient used to treat muscle aches, edema and enhance blood circulation.
It is in nature stimulating and energizing.
Good to rub, after diluted, on muscles before/after a busy day of work.
Menthol oil has a dry, sharp and strong peppermint smell, which is good for fighting fungal infections.
It is also used to control athlete’s foot or dandruff treatments.
If diluted in small amount of natural aloe vera gel, it would help to ease pain of minor burns.
It is also a good insecticide used either indoor or outdoor.
