Wintergreen essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Wintergreen plant. Aromatically, Wintergreen has a sweet, minty, refreshing scent.
"Wintergreen essential oil is derived from the leaves of a creeping shrub found in coniferous areas. The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. As a flavoring, small amounts of Wintergreen are used in candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing aroma that’s uplifting and stimulating. Through doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing® initiative, our new source of Wintergreen comes from Nepal where it is wild harvested by rural villagers then distilled by community-owned distillation facilities. This process creates increased economic opportunity for very remote regions in rural Nepal."

Wintergreen is regarded as the “Oil of Surrender.” It may assist one in feeling surrender, relying on divine grace, nonattachment, teachable, and strengthened. Wintergreen may also assist one in releasing controlling, willful, needing to be right, burdened, and excessive self-reliance.
