Taken via steam distillation from the leaves of the plant Gaultheria Procumbens, Wintergreen Essential Oil is used in a wide variety of household and cosmetic products, notably due to its somewhat minty, medicinal smell.
It has been used for hundreds of years by native North American tribes to relieve fatigued muscles amongst many other recorded applications.
Anti-inflammatory properties and a known pain relief substance, combined with its distinctive aroma, make it an excellent natural remedy for tired and sore limbs.
