Works great
Has been really helpful for shoulder pain. My husband has used it on my shoulder when giving me a back rub which always feels good, but I can't usually feel a big difference later. He added a few drops of wintergreen, and I could still feel the benefit of the massage the next morning. I don't love the smell when diffused, but I do like the smell on my skin. It's similar to peppermint, but not as overpowering to the senses.

Is this interchangeable with spearmint and peppermint? What are the advantages to having the different mints?
Mel L on Sep 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Wintergreen, Spearmint and Peppermint are extracted from very different plants so they do have different use's and aroma's. We would suggest reading through the description to see the different uses.

Is the color of this oil red? I have purchased this oil from you years ago and I love it. I just ran out and want to purchase another one, but I wanted to know if it has changed in anyway. The one I purchased had a red color.
Nejwa Y on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question! Wintergreen is generally a clear oil with a slight yellow tint.
