Spearmint, (Mentha spicata), aromatic herb of the mint family (Lamiaceae), widely used for culinary purposes. Spearmint is native to Europe and Asia and has been naturalized in North America and parts of Africa. The leaves are used fresh or dried to flavor many foods, particularly sweets, beverages, salads, soups, cheeses, meats, fish, sauces, fruits, and vegetables. The essential oil is used to flavor toothpaste, candles, candies, and jellies; its principal component is carvone.

Among several plants, Mentha piperita is one of the herbs most widely used worldwide, with a long history of safe use in medicinal preparations. Its leaf is used as a remedy for common cold, inflammation of the mouth, pharynx, liver, as well as disorders in the gastrointestinal tract such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, flatulence and dyspepsia. This plant possesses polyphenols that are highly effective antioxidants and are less toxic than the synthetic ones.  This property makes it of great interest to the Food Industry, since the phenolic compounds retard the oxidative degradation of lipids improving the quality and nutritional value of food.

The term "wild" when applied to plants or plant species refers to those that grow spontaneously in self-maintaining populations in natural or semi-natural ecosystems and can exist independently of direct human action. Venkatramna Industries have selective wild varieties of species which are being conserved to obtain oil and this is one of them. These species are the wild species (Original of their genera), means they are not Genetically modified (GMO), Non-Hybrid  and no artificial or desired characters were induced. Collectively we call them Wild Crafted Essential Oils.

The process of formulating Menthol essential oil has begun when the menthol flowers and leaves are not enough matured. This is the time when essential oil content is at its peak. Manufacturers made it usable through steam distilled methodology where the essence of menthol is prepared at apt temperature. 

Mentha piperita is a commercially important medicinal plant yielding essential oil i.e. used widely by cosmetic, liquor, confectionary, pharmaceutical and related industries. The oil is generally extracted by steam distillation. Mentha after steam distillation gives two types of waste products i.e. high boiling hydrosol and bottom pitch which sells at very low prices for the preparation of incense sticks. The bottom pitch waste is thick; fatty acid smelling material and is inexpensive.

Spearmint Oil in Pharma

Peppermint leaves carry menthol-rich volatile oils as well as tannins and bitters. Research has revealed this triad of compounds form a digestion improving cocktail that only nature could devise. Its oils sedate unhappy digestive tract nerves and reduce the shipment of nausea impulses to the brain. The tannins reduce any inflammation that might be present in the gut. The bitters increase the production. The cytotoxicity associated with essential oil has been attributed to various effects such as the production of reactive species, change in fluidity and membrane permeability, tubulin polymerization, imbalance in ion transport, and inhibition of protein function.
