Moon Essential Oil Blend: Wintergreen


The Oil of Surrender – Wintergreen

When diffused, Wintergreen essential oil is light with a sweet scent and carries a whiff of strength that draws you in.  The main chemical component in Wintergreen, methyl salicylate, is used in topical creams and massage blends because of its soothing properties. In fact, Wintergreen and Birch are the only plants in the world that contain methyl salicylate naturally. As a flavouring, small amounts of Wintergreen are used in candies, toothpaste, and chewing gum. When diffused, Wintergreen has a refreshing aroma that’s uplifting and stimulating.

Beware: A synthetic methyl salicylate is now widely used as a flavouring agent, especially in root beer, chewing gum and toothpaste. In fact, the true wintergreen essential oil is produced in such small quantities (compared to the very extensive uses of the synthetic methyl salicylate) that those  desiring to use wintergreen essential oil for therapeutic uses should verify the source of their oil to make sure they have a true oil, not a synthetic one.

You guessed it:  The key to this essential oil is methyl salicylate.  When you google this compound, you will see that it is used in products to relieve muscle joint pain, among other things. 

Note: always remember that you must be diligent when it comes to using and sourcing essential oils.  Not all oils are pure and therapeutic – please read

How this essential oil might work for you during your cycle.

From the weeks below, pick the week where you will be in your cycle during the New Moon.

Use the recipe at the end of this blog to create a unique essential oil blend with the main essential oil being Wintergreen.

Apply the Essential Oil blend on your pulse points (wrists, souls of feet, behind the ears and spine)

Week 1: Authentic Wintergreen Essential Oil can be applied to the abdomen during painful periods. Try a few drops in a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) and apply to your abdomen (left to right).  A pure source of wintergreen will have naturally derived methyl salicylate that will aid in soothing pain and discomfort.

Week 2: This week is usually good for most women due to the rising hormone of Oestrogen. It’s also the week when you could be braver than usual.  This is a good week to have wintergreen diffusing.  According to the Modern Essential Handbook, the aromatic influence including, elevation, opening and an increase in awareness in your sensory system. In other words, not only will you be elevated due to your oestrogen level, but wintergreen will enhance your already elevated sensors. What could you achieve during this week?

Week 3: Like last month, you may want to take time to be alone with your thoughts especially during the mini PMS days after ovulation.  Some women crave isolation during this time, and that’s okay, yet craving isolation all the time, may be a sign of a deeper issue. Talking to someone who truly listens is a deeply satisfying way to feel heard and loved. Wintergreen reminds individuals that they do not have to do life on their own – reach out.

Week 4:  Have you ever had those days where your thoughts turn dark and everything seems a bit off?  Welcome to week four, the dessert!   I know, its very matrix of me to talk like this, however I have had over 300 cycles, so I know what I’m talking about.  The thing is…it happens every month so it’s time we get a grip on this monthly PMS headache and surrender to its…. inevitability.  There are many remedies you can do during this week to alleviate your PMS Symptom – one of which is the application of the wintergreen blend to your heart space.  Let go, of all your tension by simply letting go of thoughts that do not serve you.

A simple mediation.

  • Apply the Wintergreen blend to your heart space.

  • Sit in a comfortable position, back straight, eyes closed

  • Breathe in through your nose allowing your abdomen to extend on the inhale

  • Breathe out through your nose slowly allowing your abdomen to contract on the exhale

  • You say to yourself during your breathing: I’m breathing through my nose; I’m breathing out my nose

I hope these tips help.
