Wintergreen Essential Oil 15 mL – doTERRA
? Great for a warming soothing massage after?exercise
? Has a refreshing aroma that?s uplifting and?stimulating
? Frequently used in gum, candy, and toothpaste for?flavoring
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 of Wintergreen 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 increased economic opportunity for very?remote regions in rural Nepal.
Aromatic Description: Sweet, minty, refreshing
