Botanical name / Gaulteria fragrantissima/Organic
(from the leaf)/Nepal/Steam Distilled

Wintergreen essential oil is steam-distilled from the organic leaves of the Gaultheria fragrantissima which grows in Nepal. Wintergreen oil is used extensively in liniments because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic properties.
It has an intense sweet-aromatic odor and is used as a flavoring in toothpastes, chewing gum and soft drinks.

Caution It is a strong oil that must be used with care and, like all oils, diluted in a carrier oil when used topically.
