Abstract or Summary

Menthol is a widely used, naturally occurring monoterpene alcohol that elicits a feeling of coolness and freshness upon application to the oral cavity, or skin (Stevens & Best, 2016). Recently menthol has demonstrated improvements in time to exhaustion (Mündel & Jones, 2010) and time trial performance (Stevens et al., 2015), but no investigations have been conducted to ascertain the preferred concentration of menthol mouth swill(s).
