Indigo Herbs Pure Menthol Crystals are a refreshing unadulterated incense that has a minty aroma and cleansing action throughout the environment where it is burnt. Menthyl crystals are an organic compound that have been synthetically extracted from Peppermint oil. When the crystals are burnt as incense they release an extremely powerful minty aroma. It is useful to inhale during a cough or cold, as it can unblock nasal passageways, sinuses and a heavy head.

Also known as: Brady mint, balm mint, curled mint, lamb mint.

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion. For full instructions go to our How to blend and use Incense page.

To use as an incense:
1. Take a lighter or match to a Charcoal disk, and when it is fully alight then set it safely into a charcoal disk holder, or heat resistant receptacle.

2. When the charcoal disk has turned grey and ash like, then add a couple of crystals.

3. This matter will begin to smolder and release an aromatic smoke.

4. Set the lid on the charcoal burner, and enjoy the sensual experience of the aroma pervading the room.

5. Add more incense when required.

 Other uses: Menthol crystals are used commercially in many preparations such as tigers balm, and cough and cold expectorant balms for the chest. At home the crystals can be dissolved in a carrier oil,  butter or cream and applied to the chest, temples, wrists, pulse points as an expectorant.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Manufacture Process

The Menthol Crystals are manufactured by extraction of menthol from Peppermint oil. The oil is chilled to a temperature of -40°C to separate the menthol constituents, which are later crystallized by slow cooling.
