I have tried other kinds of menthol sticks, but I prefer Jap Stick. Whereas other methol sticks are just formed into a cylinder and glued on a handle, the Jap Stick has its own tube where you can push from the button so that it can go all the way up. Much like a lip gloss.
This feature makes it very efficient and it keeps the menthol stick from breaking apart during a fall.
I am always with this because I love the smell and it is strong enough for migraines when I apply it on my forehead and nape. The nice scent helps me relax and it is not like the aroma of other embrocations that make you feel much sicker, especially in enclosed spaces. And it doesn't make me smell like an old-fashioned person.
It is also very cheap and can last for months, if inhaled only.
