Wintergreen essential oil is warming and often used in aromatherapy in ointments to help ease muscle and joint pains, in hand creams popular for gardeners or outdoor workers and is good for persistent coughing. The aromatherapy value of Wintergreen essential oil include analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, antitussive, astringent, carminative, diuretic, emmenagogue and stimulant.

Wintergreen oil is extracted from leaves of a small evergreen herb that grows up to 15 cm. The crushed leaves and oil from wintergreen have a lovely medicinal smell. Traditionally wintergreen was chewed by the native Indians of the Americas in order to increase lung capacity and assist in healing respiratory conditions. Early settlers chewed on wintergreen to help prevent tooth decay.

Contraindications
Overuse can be toxic. Wintergreen contains a high content of Methyl Salicylate (aspirin) that can build up in the body and contribute to Salicylate poisoning. Wintergreen pure essential oil must never be used internally. This oil should be avoided if over the counter medications containing Methyl Salicylate are simultaneously being used. Wintergreen is also a mucous membrane irritant and sensitizer. Wintergreen essential oil must be kept completely away from children since its aroma can be mistaken by a child as candy and result in accidental poisoning.
