Wintergreen Essential Oil
Gaultheria Procumbens - From India
Wintergreen oil is an essential oil that's traditionally derived from the leaves of the wintergreen plant. Methyl salicylate, the active ingredient of wintergreen oil, can be chemically synthesized and is often referred to as wintergreen oil in many products.
Wintergreen is used for headache and other types of pain, fever, gas (flatulence), and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
According to WebMD, "Wintergreen Oil Properties: Anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and warming. It is used in joint Inflammation, pain management, and rheumatoid arthritis."
- When you use this potent oil topically, make sure to dilute 1 drop of Wintergreen with at least 4 drops of a carrier oil. Wintergreen is a hot oil, which means that you should always dilute when using it. After you’ve got the right ratio of Wintergreen to carrier oil, you’ll fall hard for this essential oil’s cool factor. Massage it into your shoulders, joints, and hard-worked muscles for a tingle that tells you it’s time to chill out.
