Wintergreen Essential Oil

Gaultheria fragrantissima

Crisp and refreshing, wintergreen essential oil’s aroma is sweet and minty! This cooling oil is a potent choice for muscles and joints—just a few drops can help ease acutely sore spots and unravel knots of tension. Our wildcrafted wintergreen essential oil is steam distilled from the deep green leaves of small shrubs in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. Due to its powerful natural components, wintergreen oil should be used at a low drop count, and only for short periods of time. Choose another oil if you have dogs or cats.

Nice Aroma

So far, so good. Thank you for the oil. There was an issue in that child proof lids do not have droppers in them, and Aromatics International kindly provided a pipette. One suggestion might be to send a non-childproof cap with the dropper insert, so that families without children can replace the cap on their own. The best would be to get dropper inserts for even the childproof caps to avoid somebody unexpectedly spilling the contents.

Great oil despite the safety concerns

I love wintergreen oil, even with its safety issues it is an amazing oil. It helped the stiffness in my joints after my surgery.

Absolutely wonderful for period cramps

I love the smell of wintergreen, and I have to have it on me when my period hits because wintergreen helps my period cramp pains go down a lot. I just rubbed some on my wrists and arms/hands and you can put some on the bottom of your feet too but even just putting it on my wrists/arms helped cramps go down a lot. It's strong but thankfully my friend didn't mind the smell. She said it smelled like bubble gum.
