Due to its predominantly methyl salicylate composition, Wintergreen has anti-inflammatory and anti-analgesic properties, similar to those of aspirin. Light yellow in colour and aromatic in scent, the essential oil of Wintergreen is often used to flavour sweets. The very recognisable smell is often reminiscent of the massage creams used by sportsmen.
This oil can be used exclusively for massage and is a remarkable analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent. Its well-known smell is reminiscent of the balm used by sportsmen. Its high level of methyl salicate (over 95%) gives it its properties, which are much appreciated by sportsmen. You can use it alone, mixed with a vegetable oil like Macadamia, before, during or after exercise. But you can also mix it with the essential oil of Rom.

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.
100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.
