Peppermint oil contains high concentrations of menthone and pulegone that have natural pesticide characteristics.
The different types of chemical components of Buchu oil are -pulegone, iso-pulegone, diosphenol, 4-diosphenol, iso-menthone and menthone. The oil from Buchu leaves is derived by distillation process from the dried leaves.

[13] The most important peppermint components are menthol, menthone, neomenthol, methyl acetate, and 1,8 cineole.
Here, the quantification of compounds was performed using ion-selective monitoring to determine the specific parent ion of both pulegone (152.9 m/z [[M + H].sup.+]) and menthone (155.0 m/z [[M + H].sup.+]).

In the preliminary phytochemical analysis of the essential oil, there was the presence of the main constituents: the majority were menthol, menthone, and menthofuran compounds which were responsible for pleasant odor [8-11].
The predominant constituents were menthone (40.7-49.3%), followed by pulegone (31.3-36.5%), isomenthone (2.5-4.3%), 1,8-cineole (2.1-3.4%), borneol (2.3-2.7%), and E-caryophyllene (1.6-1.9%).
piperita was classified in the Lamiaceae family; their oil constituents include carvacrol, menthol, carvone, methyl acetate, limonene, and menthone [6].
