doTERRA partners with Wintergreen harvesters in Nepal to bring you one of the purest and fragrant oils in the industry. Through doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing™ initiative, the locals get an alternate source of income by harvesting these otherwise invasive plants and using their community-owned distillation facilities to produce this labour-intensive oil.
The active component in Wintergreen is Methyl salicylate which makes it a staple ingredient in many over-the-counter products like ointments and liniments as well as in massage blends and topical creams. It's also commonly added to gums, mints, mouthwashes, toothpaste, candies, and even rootbeer as a flavouring agent.
Wintergreen essential oil has a sweet, crisp and penetrating aroma that is both refreshing, stimulating, and uplifting. Diffuse to awaken your senses and fill your house with a fresh, minty scent!
Looking for the best post-workout essential oil? Wintergreen has a soothing and warming effect on the skin. Dilute with your favourite carrier oil and massage a few drops onto desired areas after exercise or particularly strenuous activity. A drop or two of Wintergreen into a warm bath can also be extremely soothing and relaxing!
