Wintergreen Oil

Wintergreen essential oil is obtained from the leaves of a crawling shrub commonly found in coniferous regions. The primary chemical component in Wintergreen is methyl salicylate, renowned for its soothing properties, making it a preferred ingredient in topical creams and massage blends. Remarkably, Wintergreen and Birch stand as the sole plants globally that naturally contain methyl salicylate. In addition to its therapeutic uses, Wintergreen finds application in flavoring, with small quantities incorporated into candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum.

When diffused, Wintergreen emits a refreshing aroma, imparting a sense of upliftment and stimulation. doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing™ initiative has introduced a new source of Wintergreen from Nepal. Here, the plant is wild-harvested by rural villagers and subsequently distilled in community-owned distillation facilities. This unique approach not only ensures the quality of the oil but also fosters increased economic opportunities for extremely remote regions in rural Nepal.
