doTERRA® Wintergreen essential oil is derived from the leaves of a creeping shrub found in coniferous areas. Growing up to six inches in height, Wintergreen contains bright red fruit, has oval leaves, and small, white bell-shaped flowers. The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical joint creams to soothe muscles and joints; in fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. As a flavoring, Wintergreen is used in candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen essential oil promotes healthy respiratory function and its refreshing and cooling aroma evokes clarity, awareness, and concentration.
