Gaultheria procumbens


Plant and Oil Description

With its minty fresh fragrance and flavor, you’d think wintergreen was part of the mint family. This aromatic oil is derived from the leaves of the evergreen shrub Gaultheria, native to North America (Gaultheria procumbens) and Asia (Gaultheria fragrantissima). Its active ingredient, methyl salicylate, is closely related to aspirin, and in fact just one milliliter of wintergreen essential oil is equivalent to six aspirin tablets. (Note: SenseLAB does not recommend consuming essential oils.)


What’s it Good For?

Wintergreen oil is very strong and should always be used in modest amounts and diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin.

  1. Pain relief – Use our wintergreen essential oil in a massage, added to an ointment, or in a warm compress to relieve pain caused by muscle strains, lower back pain, and even headaches! 
  2. Antibacterial properties – One study showed that wintergreen oil compared similarly to antibiotics against Borrelia burgdorferi, which causes Lyme disease. 
  3. Skin and hair care – Banish dandruff, athlete’s foot, and body acne with a well-diluted solution using SenseLAB wintergreen essential oil! Its astringent, antiseptic, and antifungal properties are fantastic natural solutions to these everyday ailments. 
  4. Stress relief – Picture yourself in a lush forest of evergreens when you add just a few drops of our essential oil into a diffuser or vaporizer. The sweet, minty smell will refresh your home while also helping to relieve stress, ease tension, and support relaxed breathing. 
  5. Cleaning – Our wintergreen essential oil can even be used around the house, from its aromatic properties to rust remover and degreaser.
