Peppermint Oil Chinese CAS 68917-18-0

The essential oil, steam distilled from the dried herb of Mentha Arvensis immediately prior to the inflorescence of the plant, is known in the U.S.A. as “Mint Oil” or Cornmint Oil”, while it is quite commonly called “peppermint oil” in other parts of the world. The latter term is definitely wrong and misleading. Only the plant mentha piperita yields true peppermint oil.
