Essential oil Wintergreen

 7,95 incl. VAT  6,57excl. VAT


Essential oil Wintergreen is an extract made of Wintergreen, for use in perfume and cosmetics.

Wintergreen owes its name to the fact that the plant remains green in winter. The leaves are made into an essential oil by means of steam distillation. Our essential oil wintergreen comes from the Gaultheria procumbens grown in China. For the production of this wintergreen no artificial fertilisers were used and also no, of only little pesticides.

Indication of the composition:
> 25% - Methyl Salicylate

Essential oil Wintergreen is a typical top note in perfumes, but is rarely used. When used often just a little bit, it's a very pungent scent. Wintergreen oil is also used as a preservative for technical products such as glue and paint.
Wintergreen is especially important in tuberose accords, but also goes well with all kinds of green accords, like mint and fresh-cut grass scents. Wintergreen oil goes well with other salicylates used in perfumery.

The oil was, and probably is, often tampered with: instead of the mentioned plant a very similar oil can be extracted from the bark of Betula Lenta (sugar birch) and because the oil consists almost entirely of methyl salicylate it can be that you get one when you order the other.

Our essential oil wintergreen is pure natural essential oil.

Wintergreen oil is harmful if swallowed. It contains none of the allergens designated by the EU as the most common contact allergens in perfume compositions.
