Wintergreen (Gaultheria fragrantissima) from the United States can increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and provides an analgesic effect helping to ease pain. This is because its primary constituent is methyl salicylate, which is a precursor to aspirin. Salicylates are very potent compounds that permeate the skin and inhibit the formation of prostaglandins thereby reducing inflammation and pain. Salicylates can be toxic and need to be used very sparingly, cautiously, and knowledgeably. Wintergreen may be an excellent pain reliever used topically for gout and sciatica.
Please DO NOT use is you are allergic to aspirin, take aspirin or other blood thinners.
Please store in a cool, dark place. Keep away from children. 100% pure organic or wildcrafted essential oil.
