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.
Suggested Uses

Soothe those “bone deep” muscle aches with a drop or two of wintergreen oil in a restoring massage butter.

Relieve - Soreness

Purify - Germs

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
