Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)


Fun fact: During the Revolutionary War, wintergreen leaves were used as tea because black tea was so highly taxed.


Traditionally, wintergreen has been used for centuries for muscle aches and pains, arthritis, and rheumatism. While its aroma is on the minty side, it has a warming quality that makes it perfect for relieving the aches and pains associated with those problems. Native Americans used crushed leaves to alleviate the pain of strained muscles, and also as an anti-inflammatory. What many may not realize is wintergreen is often used in perfumery applications, especially fragrances that possess a forest-type scent. And while wintergreen is a well-known flavoring agent for toothpastes, chewing gum, and candy, it is also used in many soft drinks, like root beer. And in what may be the biggest surprise to consumers everywhere, wintergreen is used in the world's most recognized soft drink: Coca-Cola. Its use in aromatherapy is sweet as well, as it provides sweet relief to many who suffer from the aches and pains of ailments like arthritis.


Mixes well with: Oregano, peppermint, spearmint, thyme, and ylang ylang.


Parts used: Leaves.


Extraction method: Steam or water distillation.


Safety Information: Avoid if pregnant. Only for topical use, and only if diluted. Not for use on children under 12.
