Oil Description

This organically crafted Wintergreen essential oil is steam distilled from the sustainably wildcrafted leaves of the small wintergreen shrub growing wild in the high elevations of the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. This essential oil is incredibly potent and one of the more effective essential oils at helping to relieve pain and inflammation, although it should be used with caution and for shorter periods of time than many other essential oils.

The deep green, minty leaves of the evergreen Gaultheria fragrantissima wall shrub create a fresh, sweet, minty essential oil. Along with helping to relieve pain and inflammation, wintergreen essential oil is an incredible support when looking to ease unwanted muscle spasms. Wintergreen essential oil helps support healthy lung activity, especially if one is congested from a cold or the flu. This essential oil can help reduce unwanted water retention and also has astringent properties.

This essential oil is exceptionally powerful and should be used with caution and for shorter durations in a smaller amount. Please read the safety info for this essential oil in great detail before use.

Emotionally and energetically, wintergreen essential oil revitalizes. Wintergreen essential oil can help encourage forgiveness and help promote self-acceptance.
