Mentha plants produce a large amount of essential oils of high commercial value, such as carvone, dihydrocarvone, menthone, menthol, pulegone, linalool and linalyl acetate.
The chromatographic analysis of the essential oils enabled the identification of nine volatile components, amounting to about 99% of the chemical composition, which were divided into aliphatic hydrocarbons (3-octanol), monoterpenes (limonene), oxygenated monoterpenes (neo-isopulegol, isomenthone, menthone, menthol, pulegone and carvotanacetone) and sesquiterpenes (E-caryophyllene) (Table 2).
