Wintergreen Essential Oil

Wintergreen is a woody evergreen groundcover native to the woodlands of Eastern North America. Commonly used as a flavoring for chewing gum, candies, and toothpaste, Wintergreen essential oil has a cool, minty aroma and contains the naturally occurring constituent methyl salicylate, which is beneficial for use during soothing massage to cool fatigued muscles and joints when applied topically.

Wintergreen’s fragrance may be attractive to children; always keep the child-resistant cap in place.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
