Essential Oil Notebook: Wintergreen

The key ingredient in Wintergreen Essential Oil, methyl salicylate, is found in only one other plant, the birch tree. It is this rare ingredient that that gives Wintergreen its ability to soothe and renew both body and mind. Its aroma is fresh, minty, and sweet.
Note: It is important to remember that Wintergreen is to be used only topically and aromatically. When used topically, it should always be diluted with a carrier oil.
