Menthol crystals may be used as aromatherapy. Simply dissolve a small amount of crystals in a bowl of hot water and inhale the steam.
Only use a very small amount (small pinch) of crystals to start with, and increase gradually if the vapour is not strong enough.
For best results, blow your nose before use to clear any mucus. Then slowly inhale the steam through your mouth and nose.
