Description: Clear, colorless, needle-like crystals with an odor resembling that of peppermint. They are soluble in alcohol, essential oils and olive oil, but almost insoluble in water and glycerin. The melting point is 41°C to 44°C (105.8°F to 111.2°F); boiling point is 212°C (413.6°F). Menthol crystals start to evaporate at 21°C (70°F).Constituents: The crystals contain not less than 99.4% menthol. Menthol is the chief constituent of peppermint oil and is responsible for its odor and taste and the "cooling sensation" when applied to the skin and mucosal surfaces. Mentha piperita contains up to 50% menthol and Mentha arvensis contains 70-80% menthol. Extraction Method: Steam distillation - Menthol is obtained by subjecting the distilled oil of peppermint to a temperature of -22°C, (-7.6°F.) by the aid of a freezing mixture. The menthol crystallizes out in satiny crystals and the mother liquor is removed while the low temperature is maintained.
