Overview

  • Assists with pain relief
  • Opens breathing passages
  • Made up of Methyl Salicylate
  • Essential Oil - Wintergreen 10ml

Description

Wintergreen is extensively used in pain relieving formulas; its chemical makeup is essentially that of liquid aspirin - being made up almost exclusively of methyl salicylate. The salicylates pass through the skin, entering the tissues to inhibit the formation of prostaglandins, thereby reducing inflammation and pain. The plant has been used for respiratory conditions and is often included in formulas to open the breathing passages, but is mainly employed for joint and muscular pain relief from conditions such as arthritis, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, gout, fibromyalgia

Ingredients

Gaultheria Procumbens, (Wintergreen) Leaf Oil, Eugenol, Linalool

Warnings

Wintergreen should not be used by people who are allergic to aspirin. Further, Wintergreen should never be ingested and only used topically in dilutions of 12%. Keep out of reach of children.

Directions

Always dilute before use. Massage: Dilute 5 drops in 10 ml carrier oil. Bath and inhalation: 5-10 drops in hot water. Store in a cool, dark place with the lid well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use.
