Wintergreen Oil: Exploring the Therapeutic Benefits and Soothing Effects

Wintergreen oil is derived from the leaves of the wintergreen plant (Gaultheria procumbens), which is native to North America. It has a strong, minty aroma and contains a compound called methyl salicylate, which contributes to its various benefits.

We use Wintergreen Oil in Comfort and Relief because of the benefits associated with the oil. So, what are the benefits?

Wintergreen oil is known for its analgesic properties and is commonly used to alleviate pain, particularly in conditions such as arthritis, muscle aches, and joint pain. It can provide a warming and soothing sensation when applied topically to the affected area.

Wintergreen oil possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation in the body. It may be beneficial in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or inflammation associated with injuries or overexertion. 

The minty scent of wintergreen oil, when inhaled or applied topically, can help alleviate tension headaches and migraines. It may provide a cooling and soothing effect on the temples or forehead. Making it perfect in our Comfort and Relief Oils. 

Wintergreen oil is commonly found in topical analgesic products such as creams, ointments, and balms. These products are often used for localized pain relief, such as in sore muscles, sprains, or minor injuries. Hm, hm or period pains!!

We love Wintergreen, it's one of the core ingredients that allows Comfort and Relief to have the desired effects.
