DESCRIPTION

    NOW Foods Wintergreen Oil - 1 oz.

    NOW Wintergreen Oil is 100% Pure and Natural, and steam distilled from the leaves of the low-groing wintergreen plant. NOW Foods Wintergreen Oil is warm and uplifting with a sweet, refreshing aroma. As one of today's most recognized essential oils, wintergreen is both soothing and uplifting and can be used in a cold compress for headaches.
    • 100% Pure & Natural
    • Gaultheria procumbens
    • Caution - Harmful if Swallowed. Irritant.
    Fun fact: During the Revolutionary War, wintergreen leaves were used as tea because black tea was so highly taxed.

    Traditionally, wintergreen has been used for centuries for muscle aches and pains, arthritis, and rheumatism. While its aroma is on the minty side, it has a warming quality that makes it perfect for relieving the aches and pains associated with those problems. Native Americans used crushed leaves to alleviate the pain of strained muscles, and also as an anti-inflammatory. What many may not realize is wintergreen is often used in perfumery applications, especially fragrances that possess a forest-type scent. And while wintergreen is a well-known flavoring agent for toothpastes, chewing gum, and candy, it is also used in many soft drinks, like root beer. And in what may be the biggest surprise to consumers everywhere, wintergreen is used in the world's most recognized soft drink: Coca-Cola. Its use in aromatherapy is sweet as well, as it provides sweet relief to many who suffer from the aches and pains of ailments like arthritis.

    Mixes well with: Oregano, peppermint, spearmint, thyme, and ylang ylang.

    Parts used: Leaves.

    Safety Information: Avoid if pregnant. Only for topical use, and only if diluted. Not for use on children under 12.

    What are essential oils?
    Essential Oils are the naturally occurring volatile oils obtained by steam distillation or cold pressing (expression), having the characteristic aroma of the plant part from which it was derived. These 100% pure oils are "neat", meaning they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated in any way with solvents or other additives. Although a particular species of plant harvested and distilled for its essential oil during a particular growing season in a specific region may produce a fragrance that differs from the same species grown in a different region, many of the main chemical markers and physical specifications may be very similar.NOW's citrus fruit essential oils are 100% cold pressed. NOW's other essential oils are typically 100% steam distilled.

    Do essential oils have a grading system to tell me which is better?
    There is no official grading system that grades essential oils as A, B, C or Therapeutic grade. All NOW 100% pure essential oils are accurately labeled as such and are the highest purity and quality available.

    Are NOW essential oils pure or do they have anything added to them?
    All of NOW 100% pure essential oils are labeled as such. NOW also sells clearly labeled oil blends that are formulated with essential oils or absolute extracts and another oil as a base, usually pure grapeseed oil. Natural Essential Oils by their very nature will vary slightly from season to season. NOW allows nature to take its course and do not add isolated compounds to the oil to try to standardize the naturally occurring variations of a particular oil. NOW takes both the organoleptic (sight, smell and taste) and chemical properties into account when selecting and testing NOW essential oils.

    Essential Oils are mixtures:" ":y physical means, with most essential oils obtained by the process of steam distillation of plant materials, and Citrus Oils by the process of “cold pressing” of the fruit. There are a few essential oils obtained using chemical solvent extractions. These products are termed “concretes” and “absolutes”, and are identified as such on the label. This discussion will center on the physical processes of steam distillation and cold pressing.

    Steam distillation is a three-step process comprised of the following:
    • 1. The plant material is placed on a screen in a steam still. Steam from a boiler is introduced under the screen where the plant material is held. The steam vaporizes the essential oil in the plant material. Both steam and oil vapor rise to a condenser.
    • 2. The steam and oil are condensed to a liquid, and fed to a receiving vessel.
    • 3. The essential oil rises to the top of the liquid in the receiving vessel. It is separated from the condensed steam liquid (water or hydrosols). The water may be returned to the boiler and reboiled into steam.
    Cold Pressing is a four-step process comprised of the following:
    • 1. The whole fruit is scarified, which means the peel or rind is mechanically pierced to open the sacs containing the essential oil.
    • 2. The whole fruit is then pressed which squeezes out the juice and oil.
    • 3. The oil and juice, which contains the peel and other fruit solids, are centrifuged to separate the liquids and solids.
    • 4. The oil liquid layer is then separated from the juice liquid layer.
    Further physical processing of either the steam distilled or cold pressed essential oils, such as filtering, winterizing, or distillation, may follow to clarify or rectify them by removing any debris, waxes, etc. In no instance is the use of chemical solvents permitted for products labeled as 100% pure essential oils, nor are any chemical additives permitted to enhance (adulterate) the oils. All of NOW’s Essential Oils are produced utilizing only steam distillation or cold pressing with no additional ingredients. NOW also sells a few Essential Oil Blends, which are clearly labeled as diluted with additional oils.

    I have purchased almost every essential oil sold by NOW Foods, and I have never been disappointed. I use them in all of the botanical skin and hair care products that I formulate for my company. I am very impressed by the purity and aroma of each oil. And Lucky Vitamin has great prices and service! I couldn't be more pleased!
