Description of Wintergreen Oil

A somewhat minty oil steam distilled from the leaves of the Gaultheria procumbens shrub, Wintergreen Oil has been harvested for centuries throughout China, Nepal, and other temperate environments. Typically used for its intense sweet-minty odor and flavor, this oil is incredibly common among candies, gums, and dental products. The unique creamy, slightly woody drydown of the oil’s odor also makes it a powerful component within perfumery, especially when blended with naturalistic ingredients such as ylang-ylang, lily, and gardenia. Crisp, minty, and refreshing, Wintergreen Oil continues to be an extremely popular ingredient used throughout the flavor and fragrance industry.
