About: Wintergreen essential oil is minty-fresh and sweet with powerful top notes. An evergreen shrub, Wintergreen has pink flowers and grows in high altitudes in Nepal. Wintergreen essential oil is unique as it contains over 99% methyl salicylate, making it less chemically diverse than other essential oils. The concentration of this compound requires caution: do not use during pregnancy or around children or pets.

Blending Recommendations: Wintergreen has a strong minty-sweet aroma and is used as a middle to top note in blending. It goes well with woody and minty essential oils.
