Not sure, but I'd be interested in the answers. I never thought of using menthol since a little bit of peppermint essential oil seems to give a nice cool burst.

If you read the link I posted above it says...

Menthol is the chief constituent of peppermint oil and is responsible for its odor and taste and the "cooling sensation" when applied to the skin and mucosal surfaces.

So I would guess that Menthol is just a higher contration of peppermint in a crystal form.
