The essential oil of wintergreen is unique, because it consists of 99% methyl salicylate. This substance is produced synthetically on a large scale and used in many medicines and sports rubs. However, natural methyl salicylate is far more effective than its synthetic counterpart. This is an essential oil with a limited range of effects, which are pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory. As a result, its main application is as a component in massage oils. It is advised to limit its use in the bath to a strong dilution in synergy with other essential oils. Wintergreen oil has a rapid and powerful painkilling effect, especially for muscular pain, joint problems and other pains for which massage is an appropriate remedy. It can also be used for first aid; for example, after a fall and after suffering bruises during a hike.
