Wintergreen Essential Oil + DMSO: Uses and Benefits
Wintergreen is most popularly used for pain relief and stimulating blood circulation. These two characteristics make Wintergreen particularly helpful for things like:
- Muscle Cramps
- Bone Pain
- Joint Pain
- Releasing Tension
- Nerve Pain
Wintergreen is also used to soothe skin blemishes, to relax the body and mind, and to help mask unpleasant odors.
"The predominant natural ingredient in wintergreen oil is methyl salicylate, which is a compound closely related to acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin. When applied to the skin, including tissues at the site of pain, wintergreen oil has analgesic properties."
Herbal Mana uses only natural, Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. We add Wintergreen essential oils to some of our DMSO products to aid in pain relief and as a way to help decrease inflammation.
You can try this useful mix for yourself in a variety of products like spray bottles, roller bottles, pump bottles, and more at herbalmana.com.
