Additional information

The relative density of Spearmint oil (Mentha cardiaca) was investigated according to methodology comparable to OECD guideline 109 using the oscillating densitometer method. The relative density was found to be 0.9301 at 20ºC. In a supporting study with Spearmint oil (Mentha spicata), the relative density was found to be 0.9307 at 20ºC.
