Wintergreen- Young Living


Wintergreen oil has a strong, penetrating aroma. The American Indians and early European Settlers enjoyed a tea that was flavored with birch bark or wintergreen. According to Julia Lawless, this has been translated into a preference for “root beer.”

Synthetic methyl salicylate is now widely used as a flavoring agent, especially in chewing gum and toothpaste, etc. In fact, the essential oil of Wintergreen is produced is such small quantities compared to the very extensive uses of the synthetic methyl salicylate. This is one reason it is SO IMPORTANT to verify the source of your essential oils, to ensure they contain true distilled plant soil and not a synthetic knock-off.


This oil has a very powerful relief action, due to the high content of methyl salicylate. It’s greatest effect can be felt in the muscles and bones, but is well documented to bring relief to many other parts of the body.

Aromatically, it influences, elevates, opens and increases awareness in the sensory system
