Wintergreen essential oil is derived from the leaves of a creeping shrub found in coniferous areas. The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties to the skin. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. Also used in small amounts as a flavouring, in toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing aroma that uplifts to enliven the senses. Through dōTERRA’s Co–Impact Sourcing™ initiative, our new source of Wintergreen comes from Nepal where it is wild harvested by rural villagers then distilled by community-owned distillation facilities. This process creates increased economic opportunity for very remote regions in rural Nepal.
