Gaultheria procumbens is a small, low growing plant that grows to around 6 inches. The plant bears rich green leaves and white bell-shape flowers that progress to a bright red berry-like fruit. Its leaves are green throughout the winter, allowing forest animals to consume the plant as an important source of winter food. Wintergreen Essential Oil is steam distilled from the precious leaves. When the leaves are bruised, the aroma is strong and minty, although Wintergreen is not classified as a True Mint. The color of the oil is pale yellow to pinkish. It has a stimulating & refreshing odor that has an intense, sweet-woody, strong, almost fruity aroma. Think “Wintergreen Life Savers!”
