Native to Nepal, Fragrant Wintergreen (Gaultheria Fragantissima) is a
small evergreen shrub with white blossoms that produce purplish red
berries in winter. Pressing its leaves releases a strong medicinal
odour. A close cousin to Wintergreen, whose name has been attributed to
Canadian botanist, J.F. Gaulther, Fragrant Wintergreen is known to
soothe muscle aches. The essential oil obtained by distilling its leaves
contains a high concentration (99%) of methyl salicylate and has an
odour that is highly characteristic of balms used in sports medicine.
Wintergreen Fragrant essential oil is used in aromatherapy for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain associated with backache, lumbago, strains, bruises, sprains and arthritis.
