Wintergreen Essential Oil Profile

Botanical: Gaultheria procumbens | Origin: China | Method: Steam Distilled


A pale yellow or pinkish liquid with an intense sweet-woody, almost fruity odor. It blends well with oregano, mints, thyme, ylang-ylang, narcissus, and vanilla.

Principal Constituents:

These are naturally occurring in the essential oil.

  • methyl salicylate (up to 98%)

  • formaldehyde

  • gaultheriline


Methyl salicylate is the main active ingredient in aspirin, and wintergreen has been used for 'sore muscle rubs' for a long time; however, due to these levels it should not be used indiscriminately. It is considered topically irritant and sensitizing, and should never be taken internally without physician oversight.
