Wintergreen essential oil (Gaultheria procumbens) has a sweet, minty scent. The oil is distilled from the small evergreen herb’s leaves. The refreshing, clean taste of wintergreen has made it a favorite in flavoring numerous products.
Wintergreen’s stimulating fragrance may be attractive to children so always keep the child-resistant cap in place. Wintergreen contains the same active ingredient (methyl salicylate) as birch and is beneficial in massage for soothing head tension and muscles after exercising. Originally, wintergreen oil was used by native North Americans for its medicinal properties to treat a variety of symptoms.
Wintergreen has an approximate ORAC of 1,018,439 (TE/L).
TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
