Wintergreen Essential Oil
Wintergreen essential oil
has a strong, sweet, aromatic scent. The color of the oil is pale yellow to pinkish. It is steam distilled from the leaves of a broadleaf evergreen.
There are claims that it is not possible to find a natural Wintergreen essential oil
. It is true that many dishonest companies are guilty of rebadging Wintergreen Oil. They do so because Wintergreen contains 99% methyl salicylate naturally, and it is therefore cheaper to make a methyl salicylate synthetic product, but it is dishonest to describe this synthetic substitute as being natural. Wintergreen essential oil
Gaultheria from The Aromatherapy Place is a 100% pure and natural essential oil
distilled from Gaultheria precumbens. It is considered the finest natural Wintergreen Oil.
