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 to the skin. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally.
When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing, uplifting aroma to help enliven the senses. Through doTERRA’s Co–Impact Sourcing initiative, our Wintergreen comes from Nepal where it is wild harvested by rural villagers then distilled by community-owned distillation facilities. This process helps create increased economic opportunity for very remote regions in rural Nepal.
- Wintergreen has a warming effect when applied to skin and is excellent to use as a soothing massage. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly and dilute with a carrier oil to minimise any skin sensitivity.
