Wintergreen Essential Oil


Wintergreen is an uplifting essential oil with a refreshing minty aroma. When diffused, this multi-tasking oil encourages a positive ‘let’s do this’ attitude with its energizing scent. It’s the perfect way to start the day, providing a welcome boost before an early morning run or important presentation.

While Wintergreen’s aroma is refreshing, it has warming qualities that make it an ideal choice to help relieve a backache, as well as joint and muscle pain associated with sprains, strains, or rheumatoid arthritis. An ideal companion for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, Wintergreen is a wonderful addition to your gym bag to use during or following a workout. It’s a wonderful oil to keep handy in your desk drawer as an instant pick-me-up to beat that 3 o’clock slump. With an intoxicating fragrance, Wintergreen offers renewed vitality to face whatever the day may bring.

Wintergreen can be used topically:

  • To help relieve joint or muscle pain associated with sprains, strains and arthritis
  • To relieve the physical stresses of the day, including backache or lumbago
