This powerful essential oil, when used properly, can be extremely helpful when applied topically.  In fact, American Indians used wintergreen recognized the benefits of wintergreen and used it extensively.

Wintergreen is one of my favorite go-to oils for discomfort.  Massage into hands, back, and legs for a soothing and warming sensation after exercise...or place a few drops on a cotton ball and discretely hide it in your (or your spouse or active teenager's) gym bag ... Works wonderfully to mask any odors!  (go ahead, ask me how I know...)

I like to combine wintergreen with Melaleuca in a spray bottle to spray inside of shoes and on my daughter's workout clothes for a good refresher in between practices...

While most oils are certified GRAS (Generally recognized as safe for consumption) this one is not labeled as such and should not be consumed internally.
