This product is obtained by steam distillation of fresh stems and leaves of the mint plant of the Labiatae family. The yield is generally 0.3%-0.6%. After the peppermint oil is re-frozen and partially removed from the brain, 45%-55% of menthol is taken out, and the volatile oil obtained by the processing is peppermint oil. Peppermint oil typically removes the head oil and the post oil fraction during the fractionation process. This operation is characterized by being very deformable and forming a different style of peppermint oil. Peppermint oil, which removes a large fraction of the fraction, is sometimes referred to as deuterated oil.
