Note: Always use Wintergreen with a carrier oil when rubbing into the skin due to the presence of methyl salicylate. You may find your Wintergreen oils and oil blends which contain it, will have a child-resistant lock. In large doses, it would be harmful to consume. Always read your labels and keep your oils in a safe place.
