Menthol is an organic compound that is harvested form the oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, and various other members of the mint family, or made synthetically. It is very fragrant with an inherently minty aroma. Menthol is found in many consumer products, everything from cold medicines to cigarettes. It triggers cold-sensitive receptors in human skin, which creates the familiar icy sensation when it is applied to the skin, eaten, or inhaled. This is why menthol is used in many cough suppressants. Beyond that, it has many other medicinal benefits, including being a decongestant, and is great for oral hygiene.
Extract Consultants first offered individual isolated terpenes to the market for both educational and creativity purposes, as people want to replace the entourage effect that is lost through the extraction process.
