Description

Wintergreen 15 mL Gaultheria fragrantissima

Wintergreen essential oil is derived from the leaves of a creeping shrub found in coniferous areas. The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. As a flavoring, small amounts are used in candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing aroma that’s uplifting and stimulating. Through doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing® initiative, our new source of Wintergreen comes from Nepal where it is wild harvested by rural villagers then distilled by community-owned distillation facilities. This process creates an increased economic opportunity for very remote regions in rural Nepal. Most modern consumers are familiar with the aroma and flavor due to its popularity in candy and chewing gum. The essential oil, however, has much more to offer, such as its use in a warming, soothing massage after exercise. For aromatic or topical use.
