Wintergreen Essential Oil
Wintergreen is used for headaches and other types of pain fever, gas (flatulence), and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
In manufacturing, wintergreen is used as a flavoring agent in food, candies, teas, root beer, and pharmaceutical products.
- Wintergreen oil has a warming effect when applied to the skin and is excellent to use as a soothing massage. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly and dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
- For a soothing bath, add 1–2 drops of Wintergreen essential oil to warm bathwater.
Wintergreen oil has also been used in traditional medicine for the following conditions:
- Bacterial Infections
- Skin Conditions
- Sore throat
- Tooth decay
Warnings: Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If sensitivity occurs, discontinue use immediately. If pregnant or nursing, consult your healthcare practitioner before using. Not for internal use.
