mentha x piperita herb oil idaho
Kubeczka (1993) compared the chemical compositions of peppermint oil produced from two different regions in the United States with the composition of an oil noted as Mitcham oil (origin unknown). His results are shown in Table VI. Note: Only the Peppermint Oil from Michigan analysis will be shown here:

mentha x piperita oil CO2 extract
Reverchon et al. (1994) compared the composition of a supercritical CO2 extract (SFE) of peppermint under two separate sets of conditions with a sample of peppermint oil produced by hydrodistillation. The results of the GC/MS analyses of the volatile concentrates of peppermint oil and peppermint produced by SFE can be seen in Table VIII. Note: Only the SFE-2 (T:40C, P:120 bar) will be shown as follows:
