Wintergreen Essential Oil

Wintergreen is an uplifting essential oil with a refreshing minty aroma. When diffused, this multi-tasking oil encourages a positive ‘let’s do this’ attitude with its energizing scent. It’s the perfect way to start the day, providing a welcome boost before an early morning run or important presentation.

While Wintergreen’s aroma is refreshing, it has warming qualities that make it an ideal choice to help relieve backache, as well as joint and muscle pain associated with sprains, strains, or rheumatoid arthritis. An ideal companion for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, Wintergreen is a wonderful addition to your gym bag to use during or following a workout. It’s a wonderful oil to keep handy in your desk drawer as an instant pick-me-up to beat that 3 o’clock slump. With an intoxicating fragrance, Wintergreen offers renewed vitality to face whatever the day may bring.

Wintergreen can be used topically:

  • To help relieve joint or muscle pain associated with sprains, strains and arthritis
  • To relieve the physical stresses of the day, including backache or lumbago

Product Tips:

  • Use the AromaGlide Roller Fitment with this essential oil and pop it in your gym bag for soothing relief post-workout.
  • Apply it to your wrist and enjoy the stimulating minty scent when you need an instant pick-me-up at the office or school before a big presentation.
  • Enhance a massage by adding a few drops of Wintergreen to V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex. Apply to your neck or back and release the physical stresses of the day.
  • Add it to your favourite body lotion and apply to tired muscles after activity.
  • Enjoy the soothing, warming effect on achy joints or a stiff back following gardening or yardwork.
  • Pamper tired feet with a refreshing blend of Wintergreen and your favourite foot cream.
  • When your body is telling you it needs the VIP treatment, slip into a relaxing bath and add a few drops of Wintergreen to your bath water.
