Description: Wintergreen is native to North America, especially the north-eastern region and Canada. It is a small evergreen herb producing white flowers followed by fleshy scarlet berries. The main chemical component in Wintergreen is methyl salicylate and is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties. Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants that contain methyl salicylate naturally. Wintergreen is used frequently as a flavoring for candies, toothpaste and chewing gum. When wintergreen is diffused it is stimulating, uplifting and refreshing.

Uses:

Skin: Used as a warming effect when applied to the skin and is excellent to use as a soothing massage oil. Wintergreen is very concentrated so a little goes along way. It is important to blend with fractionated coconut oil to dilute and minimize skin sensitivity. Maybe used in the bath to soothe, add 1-2 drops of Wintergreen essential oil to warm bath water.

Ingredients:  Certified Organic Gaulcherin Procumbens (Wintergreen) Essential Oil.
