Product description :

Divine Essence - Wintergreen - Fragrant

Native to Nepal, Fragrant Wintergreen is a small evergreen shrub with white blossoms that produce purplish red berries in winter. Pressing its leaves releases a strong medicinal odour. A close cousin to Wintergreen, whose name has been attributed to Canadian botanist, J.F. Gaulther, Fragrant Wintergreen is known to soothe muscle aches. The essential oil obtained by distilling its leaves contains a high concentration (99%) of methyl salicylate and has an odour that is highly characteristic of balms used in sports medicine.

Wintergreen Fragrant essential oil is used in aromatherapy for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain associated with backache, lumbago, strains, bruises, sprains and arthritis.

Posology

Topical (Adults): Mix 1 to 2 drops in 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) of vegetable oil; apply locally 3 times a day.

Usage

Wintergreen Fragrant essential oil is used in aromatherapy for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain associated with backache, lumbago, strains, bruises, sprains and arthritis.
