Benefits of Wintergreen Oil for Pain Relief [Wellness Tips]

WINTERGREEN OIL 

This treasure of nature is made by steam processing warmed, water-soaked wintergreen leaves. Its scientific name is: Gaultheria procumbens. It's family? Ericaceae.

Wintergreen not only contains methyl salicylate, which means that it is effective in its own right in relieving arthritis pain, joint stiffness, muscle spasms, and inflammation, but it is also an effective agent that can help carry other pain relieving ingredients deep into the source of the pain.
Originally, wintergreen oil was utilized by Native North Americans due to its potent medicinal properties in treating symptoms of rheumatism, sore throats, tooth decay, insect bites, snakebites, and bee stings. They particularly used it to reduce swellings and inflammations - while small doses of wintergreen tea were reputed to improve one's overall health and sense of well being. Today, however, it is mostly used for pain relief. This is largely due to the predominant active ingredient in wintergreen oil, methyl salicylate. 

For this reason, this natural/herbal ingredient is one of the many active ingredients in the deep-penetrating analgesic MUSCLEMAGIC PAIN RELIEF CREAM favored by top athletes, trainers, and health care professionals. MuscleMagic Pain Relief relies on a unique delivery system which includes pure EMU OIL, serving to easily transport Wintergreen, Camphor and other active ingredients to the source. This results in fast relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with: arthritis, simple backache, sport injuries, strains, and sprains. 

This powerful formula is particularly favored since it is does contain the strong or foul smell that many topical analgesics tend to have. It is also a pro-athlete favorite since they can utilize it for pain relief as opposed to having to take pills for alleviation of muscle pain after strenuous activity.
