Soil Organic Wintergreen Oil 10ml
Wintergreen is extensively used in pain relieving formulas; its chemical makeup is essentially that of liquid aspirin – being made up almost exclusively of methyl salicylate. The salicylates pass through the skin, entering the tissues to inhibit the formation of prostaglandins, thereby reducing inflammation and pain. The plant has been used for respiratory conditions and is often included in formulas to open the breathing passages, but is mainly employed for joint and muscular pain relief from conditions such as arthritis, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, gout, fibromyalgia, Contradictions: Wintergreen should NOT be used by people who are allergic to aspirin. Further, Wintergreen should NEVER be ingested and only used topically in dilutions of 12% or Care must be taken to always keep the oil away from children.

SOiL was born out of our family managed, organic essential oil farming operation in Zululand, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. It is here that we have been growing and distilling aromatic plants for their precious oils since 2001. As an eco-ethical range certified by ECO-Cert , SOiL was the first company in South Africa to sell a complete range of 100% certified organic essential oils, many of which we grow ourselves on our organic farm in Zululand. We also launched South Africa’s first line of certified organic massage oil blends and body care products, which we expand and grow year by year.
