Words by Anny Schneider

Not to be confused with wintergreen, it comes from a Nepali shrub also from the ericaceous family.

Its methyl salicylate level is even higher, so it is a powerful anti-inflammatory analgesic, not to mention its deodorant effects.

Origin of this essential oil

This Certified Organic Essential Oil of Sweet Wintergreen from Nepal is distilled from the leaves of the shrub.

Suggestions for use

It is used diluted in oil: 2 drops of fragrant wintergreen essence for 10ml of good quality organic vegetable oil (see vegetable oils on our site).

  • As with all essential oils, it is recommended to first perform a skin test in the bend of the elbow to check that no skin reaction appears.
  • It is imperative to dilute the essential oil of fragrant Wintergreen, in order to avoid any risk of irritation or intoxication, and to be able to continue to use it in the long term.
  • During surgery, stop using fragrant wintergreen at least 48 hours before.

More information

Sweet Wintergreen is the source of the "essence of Wintergreen" similar to that extracted from wild Canadian Wintergreen.

It is a shrub 1-3 m high, rarely a small tree (up to 4 m), evergreen.

The extracted essential oil is strongly colored red, with a strong camphor aroma and a bittersweet taste which could be due to the presence of a large number of volatile components.

The essence of Wintergreen is used in North America in the formulation of oral hygiene products, cosmetic products, medicinal preparations for external use as well as for the flavoring of food products.

But wintergreen essence is often replaced by synthetic methyl salicylate.
