Botanical Name: Gaultheria procumbens L., fam. Ericaceae
Common Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation
Parts Used: Leaf
Aroma: It is very sweet, minty and spicy and similar to Sweet Birch.
Country of Origin: China
Traditional Use: The natural constituent Methyl Salicylate is the common denominator affecting the scent of both Birch and Wintergreen. In aromatherapy they share similar uses. Wintergreen works well in massage oils for sports injuries if dilluted properly. It is also a great refresher in room diffusers. Not surprisingly it blends well in mint and citrus but adds interesting detail to florals if used with discipline and care.
