Peppermint Oil Arvensis DMO

The cultivation of mentha arvensis is an important cash crop for thousands of farmers in Uttar Pradesh. A crude essential oil is produced in basic field distillation units and then later sold to collectors for further distilling in larger local factories. This oil is the starting material for the manufacture of natural menthol. Ninety percent of the global production is located in India. Crude mentha arvensis is a commodity traded on the MCX (Multi Commodity Exchange) in Delhi and can be prone to much speculation.
