Gaultheria oil is also known as Wintergreen essential oil. It is one of the two plants in the world that contains ‘methyl salicylate’. It is the chemical behind the strong soothing properties of Gaultheria Oil.
Gaultheria (Wintergreen) oil, as the name suggests is the oil extracted from Gaultheria (Wintergreen) herb. There are two species of Wintergreen, namely Gaultheria procumbens and Gaultheria fragrantissima. The former is native to North America while the latter is indigenous to Asia and India. If you guessed it right, here we are talking about Gaultheria fragrantissima.
While all essential oils claim to provide some kind of medicinal benefit, and rightfully so, they do, Gaultheria oil has unique benefits of its own. As mentioned above, it is because it is abundant with a chemical called ‘methyl salicylate’. Let us now look at what benefits Gaultheria oil has to provide.
It relieves Joint Pain, Back Pain, Bone Pain, Muscle Pain, Knee Pain, Blood Clotting, Rheumatic Pain, Arthritis, Spontilices, and all Other Muscular Pains. It is also believed to increase the speed of healing for skin disorders, and when added to lotions, acts as a natural moisturizer.
Mix Gaultheria Oil along with Warm Coconut oil in the same ratio (1:1), and apply it on the painful region.
