Wintergreen 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.
