Wintergreen is the “fire” in fire & ice–our muscle blend–and has a fantastic warming ability. Aromatically, it promotes clear breathing. Diffuse into the air or apply topically in 2-5% dilution (18-45 drops of oil to a 30ml bottle of carrier oil).
Wintergreen is commonly used as bait to attract male orchid bees. Additionally, Wintergreen was first used by Native Americans to increase lung capacity and improve respiratory problems.
