Wintergreen Organic* Essential Oil

Gaultheria procumbens leaves, steam distilled, from Nepal.

*This oil is Certified Organically Grown.

Aroma: Has a sweet, minty characteristic odour, displaying a peculiar creamy-fruity top note and a sweet-woody undertone.

History: Menthyl salicylate, from which ASA (aspirin) is synthesized, is the principal constituent of this plant and has been incorporated in liniments and ointments for muscular skeletal problems. Wintergreen and Sweet Birch oil are nearly identical in chemical composition and aroma; both have been used similarly in traditional folk remedies.

Colour: reddish because it was distilled in the winter!

Common Uses: Wintergreen is credited with having therapeutic properties as an antiseptic, a diuretic, stimulant, emenagogue and anti-rheumatic. It is very useful in many rheumatic conditions, for gout and stiffness due to old age. It also revitalizes and gives energy following muscular pains.
