These crystal mints are cooling, refreshing, and have a pleasantly strong minty aroma. Peppermint crystals are known to promote easier breathing, temporarily relieve nasal congestion, soothe sore throats, alleviate fever symptoms, coughs, headaches, and sinus discomforts.
Instead of chewing gum which has resin, wax and elastomer or eating a peppermint candy filled with sugar, corn syrup, titanium dioxide (for color), FD&C red 40, a peppermint crystal is pure.
Derived from the peppermint leaf through the process of distillation. This mint essential oil is then frozen at low temperature. The process of freezing the oil causes it to crystalize, making it into crystals.
The whole process is based using physical properties of the peppermint oil (no chemicals is added during the process). There are lots of artificial peppermint crystals in the market.
Keep in a cooler room temperature. If it’s in the sun, it will melt and clump together.
