Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)

Greenland or evergreen is a low-flowing plant found in China, also in the north-east of North America in Newfoundland, Manitoba and Alabama. It only grows up to 6 cm high, its white bell-shaped, and its fruit is bright red. Eo is obtained by steam distillation from evergreen leaves, which are far from giving out sweet, menthol and refreshing aroma. In addition to the birch, the only plant containing the natural form of methyl salicylate, which at the same time is the main compound of its eo and works similarly to cortisone. It is often added to the painful muscles and joints. Eo has a beneficial effect on the respiratory tract, and is often added to the chewing gum, sweets and toothpaste due to its aroma. As it refreshes, it is also beautiful with poor concentration and drowsiness, as it cleans us and raises our attention. It is therefore a great analgesic, it works against inflammation and it is a good antiseptic.

SPECIAL FEATURES
• Wintergreen is not recommended for internal use. We keep it out of reach of children, because it smells like candy. The latter is also packed with a special closure.
• It is not used during pregnancy, even in the case of epilepsy.
• I particularly recommend an allergy test (possible allergies to methyl salicylate).
