Wintergreen Essential Oil


Wintergreen Essential Oil (Gaultheria procumbens) is a wondrous oil that actually has a fairly 'sweet' herbal smell that works wonderfully on arthritis and muscle pain. Be careful not to use too much (2.5% dilution) if using for massage purposes.

Inflammation has also been shown to be reduced around affected areas due to chemicals similar to aspirin contained within Wintergreen Oil. This one is worth a try during the more painful periods of the above conditions, and may bring some relief.

How does it work? Wintergreen is actually a counterirritant. What this means is that it will cause irritation under the skin that reduces swelling and pain within the deeper tissues. This is also an antibacterial oil.

Emotionally, Wintergreen is sometimes diffused to fill the room with a sweet and minty smell that will uplift moods and stimulate the mind and body.

Another little known use is for masking other scents. This is a powerful scent that can over-ride less pleasant odors with a minty punch.
