WINTERGREEN (Gaultheria Procumbens), Australia.

The scent of Wintergreen Oil is synonymous with the familiar fragrances of sports and muscle rubs. True Wintergreen is virtually identical with sweet birch oil, with Methyl salicylate its main constituent (up to 98%). Methyl salicylate has long been incorporated into liniments and ointments for muscular skeletal problems, and is often recommended by naturopaths for this purpose.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: some tests have shown that Methyl salicylate can be a moderate irritant at a concentration of as low as 1%, and ingestion of relatively small amounts of Methyl salicylate may result in fatal poisoning. This is why Wintergreen is not a commonly found oil: it needs to be respected – used with care, NEVER ingested, and kept out of reach of children AT ALL TIMES. However, these precautions should be followed with ANY essential oil, so as long as you practice good safety with your essential oil collection, Wintergreen can be safely incorporated into your Aromatherapy kit.
