Wintergreen in Summer? Yes. Definitely. With so many awesome things going for it, you are going to find this it is another staple for your home! My top Wintergreen tip? I love using it after a workout, and massage it into my muscles! Whoohoo! Wait until you find out why doTERRA chose to source Wintergreen from Nepal! Wintergreen essential oil is derived from the leaves of a creeping shrub found in coniferous areas. The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. As a flavoring, small amounts of Wintergreen are used in candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing aroma that’s uplifting and stimulating.
- Great for a warming soothing massage after exercise
- Has a refreshing aroma that’s uplifting and stimulating
- Frequently used in gum, candy, and toothpaste for flavoring
For a super fun diffuser blend that might smell a little bit like rootbeer... add 3 drops Wintergreen and 3 drops Citrus bliss to your diffuser!
The Co-Impact Sourcing initiative in Nepal allows doTERRA to source high quality Wintergreen oil while increasing the economic opportunity of rural harvesters.

I am amazed that the earthquakes in Nepal were just the beginning of a terrible problem. Reading this article helped me to see that the after-math of the quake was just as bad, if not worse, as the earthquake itself. After the earthquake, people were at greater risk of infection, disease, and so much more, but I was grateful to hear that non-profits like CHOICE Humanitarian and the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation acted fast to help support them.
