Fragrant Wintergreen


Fragrant Wintergreen
Gaultheria Fragrantissima

Originally from Nepal, it is the main ingredient used to make Tiger Balm.
It is a shrub-like plant, so beautiful with its round, vividly red fruits that grow in bunches. The essential oil is obtained by steam-distilling the leaves and small branches.
It has a tangy and persistent aroma, like a powerful disinfectant.

Fragrant Wintergreen

It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and painkiller, perfect for soothing muscle and joint paints. Besides its analgesic action, it is also an antioxidant.
It can be found in Canada as well, where the Inuit use it as an ‘all-purpose’ painkiller.

Suggested uses:

  • Bathtub: emulsify 5 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
  • Massages: we recommend to dilute 1-3 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil

Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
