Wintergreen has enjoyed popularity for many centuries, especially by native Americans. Treating respiratory tract infections, chewing the leaves for increased endurance and respiratory capacity, helping them run longer. Ojibwes and Mohawk were known to drink wintergreen tea as a healthful medicinal beverage. The scent alone is able to lift your mood and stimulate attentiveness and is especially stimulating to your sensory system.
Pain relief is what Wintergreen perhaps does best, alleviating headaches, cramps, tendonitis, joint pain by stimulating blood circulation and clearing obstructions. Deadly to bacteria, Staph and fungi, it can be a useful topical agent. It even helps tone skin and prevent acne when diluted, while toning hair roots and preventing dandruff.
Wintergreen is said to have cortisone-like effects and can relieve pain quickly by promoting circulation, providing a warm sensation and even helping numb the affected area.
