Wintergreen oil is made by steam processing of warmed, water-soaked wintergreen leaves. It eradicates pain and relieves stress and tension. Wintergreen gets absorbed easily into the skin and acts like a natural numbing agent. It also promotes blood circulation and cools irritation, which is comforting to swollen skin. As a natural astringent and antiseptic, when applied directly to the skin with a carrier oil, wintergreen is able to fight inflammation from acne and blemishes. Due to its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, it helps in preventing infections. It also prevents dandruff and tones the hair roots, which helps prevent hair fall.
