Such variation is well illustrated and summarized by Brian Lawrence in his thorough reviews of peppermint oil.4,5 Methods to standardize peppermint oils by adding specific mint fractions or compounds isolated from other mint species, as well as other natural non-mint isolates were explored by Moyler and Moss.6 When fractions or isolates of oils from Mentha species other than piperita are used, as well as other natural flavors, the label of the blend must be identified as WONF (With Other Natural Flavors).6 In this paper we present the oil from our selected Mentha x aquatica L. (“Aquamint”) that can be blended to an M. x piperita oil to increase the menthofuran to match a standard “Yakima” oil.
