It seem to be used in old-fashioned hair-growth recipes: According to the Windsor and Richmond Gazette, of the 8th of July, 1911 : "We have received the following recipe from a correspondent who has found it to be of great value. Our correspondent says that this mixture is a hair tonic which, if rubbed briskly into the scalp night and morning with the finger tips, will not fail to promote the growth of hair, to remedy baldness, to restore grey hair to its natural colour and to destroy dandruff. Take 1/4 dram of Menthol Crystals and put them into a bottle containing 8 oz. of Bay Rum and see that they are entirely dissolved, then add 1 oz. of Lavoca de Composse, and if desired one teaspoonful of To-Kalon perfume. Shake well and let it settle for half an hour when it will be ready for use. Other readers will doubtless be glad to try this remedy which our correspondent has sent. We understand that the ingredients may be obtained from any chemist. CAUTION. - As this is doubtless a remarkable hair grower, it should be applied only where hair is desired. "
