This bright green leafy bush with attractive red berries was used for centuries by Native American populations as an aid for sore, aching joints and muscles due to aging or strenuous activities.
When added to a carrier at a maximum dilution of 2%, Wintergreen essential oil can help with the aches and discomfort associated with aging joints. Please consult with our Aromatherapists ([email protected]) if you need help deciding if Wintergreen is right for your situation.

5.0 5  Pain Killer

I was first introduced to this oil many years ago in India in a Ayurvedic pain blend. I used to get it from India in the past, but not anymore. I now make my own pain blends and add wintergreen. I am very cautious using it because I know it inhibits clotting. I will not blindly recommend this to others as it has to be used with caution.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

3.0 5  Not quite as described, but works for my purposes.

I purchased wintergreen because I love minty/medicinal scents and was intrigued by the description of sharp, sweet and fruity. This one is a bit more medicinal than I expected. It is very mild, but I don’t smell sweet or fruity at all. Out of the bottle, it starts off smelling minty, but ends on a kind of moldy note. The moldy hint goes away when used in the diffuser, alone or in combination with other oils, and it becomes more like the wintergreen mint smell I was expecting. I have also added this oil to lotions and my (homemade & store bought) mouthwash with some success. If you are looking for a nice minty fresh scent, try peppermint or muscle aid, or spearmint for the fruity mint smell. If you like mildly medicinal scents, this one may work for you.

I use wintergreen on a regular basis for knee pain and to loosen my daughter's soccer muscles. I'm very happy to have an alternative to OTC pain pills.
