Sometimes referred to as checkerberry, gaultheria oil, or eastern teaberry, Wintergreen essential oil has that familiar fresh, minty aroma you'd find in candies, gums, and toothpaste.
A lot of its medicinal benefits can be attributed to its properties as an astringent, antiseptic, analgesic, antirheumatic, carminative, emmenagogue, diuretic, antispasmodic, anodyne, and antiarthritic. Quite a mouthful, right? So are its benefits!
Wintergreen essential oil is a popular treatment for those suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, nerve pain especially sciatica, muscular cramps, gout, and joint pain. It also helps with a variety of digestive issues such as flatulence and stomachache.
This oil also works wonders in promoting urination thus effectively getting rid of excess water in your body!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
