Wintergreen Essential Oil (Gaultheria procumbens)
Wintergreen oil is a beneficial essential oil that is extracted from the leaves of the Gaultheria procumbens evergreen plant. Once steeped in warm water, beneficial enzymes within wintergreen leaves called methyl salicylates are released, which are then concentrated into an easy-to-use extract formula using steam distillation.
It’s one of the best sources of this inflammation-fighting compound in the world, and believed to be one of only several plants that naturally supply enough to form an extract. Birch essential oil also contains methyl salicylate and therefore has similar tension-reducing benefits and uses.
Wintergreen is absorbed into skin quickly and acts like a natural numbing agent, similar to cortisone. It also promotes blood circulation and cools irritation, which is comforting to swollen skin. Additionally, wintergreen also contains antioxidants and beneficial ingredients, including guaiadienes (chemical structure), a-pinene, myrcene, delta 3-carene, limonene and delta-cadinene.
