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.

The WELLGirls Recommend - January 2021

Our craving for the Wellness Cacoa Activated Granola has no limits. We are especially excited about the new price reduction, which makes this product not only incredibly delicious but also very affordable! This scrumptious granola can be enjoyed as a smoothie bowl topping, a cereal with fresh berries and your preferred milk, or even just as a sneaky snack. To top it all off, the granola has been dusted in antioxidant-rich cacao, contains no added sugar, and the nuts and seeds have been carefully activated. 

 

Activation stations, everybody!

 

The activation process involves soaking the nuts and seeds to stimulate the sprouting process, and then airdrying them at a low temperature. This process breaks down problematic compounds (called phytates) that would otherwise decrease the bioavailability of the nutrients in the nuts and seeds, meaning our bodies can more easily absorb all the available vitamins and minerals. Activation also ensures the nuts and seeds are gentler on the digestive tract.

 

We hope you got all of that over the sound of us crunching away on our new favourite treat!
