Organic Wintergreen Essential Oil
Organic Wintergreen Essential Oil comes from the Gaultheria Procumbens L. plant that is well known for it’s beautiful red and green colors. The branches are thin and reddish-brown, with green leaves, and a fruit to the tip of the branch that turn a matte red color upon ripening. The plant is commonly grown in North America, but is also cultivated in India. Native American Indians used Wintergreen for both personal care and in festivals for many centuries, prior to western expansion. The strong minty candy scent makes it extremely unique, and is a must have for any essential oil enthusiasts and aromatherapists.
Wintergreen essential oil naturally contains high levels of methyl salicylate which is classified as a drug by the FDA. Methyl salicylate is commonly used in topical analgesics intended to relieve muscle pain and should not be handled by children. This product is sold for manufacturing purposes.

I love the smell of wintergreen, so I was really excited to try Bulk Apothecary's wintergreen, but it smells a little fermented or old possibly(?). I am assuming it was just a bad batch or was maybe not one that was supposed to have been sold. I really love Bulk Apothecary's oils and will continue to buy from them, but was just a little disappointed in the wintergreen EO that I got from them.
I love the scent. I use it as a poopuree spray. It gets rid of the scent!
Smells just winter green candy we ate as kids growing up
I USE IT ON ALL MY PAINS AND IT WORKS
The scent lasts on and on. We love it
