Wintergreen Essential Oil contains 85-99% of methyl salicylate the same active ingredient as birch and is beneficial in massage for soothing head tension and muscles after exercising. This is a key oil in the Raindrop Technique.

It is interesting that this plant associates with many of our senses: smell, taste, touch and hearing (sound). Wintergreen essential oil can penetrate deep within the body it can increase the vibration of the body and enhancing sound on all levels. The odor alone is said to do this.

Because of this, it was used during spiritual ceremonies, especially where sound was used (meditations, chants, etc). It brought back harmony between the earth and its people through healing and awareness.

This increase in vibration opens spiritual awareness and leads to introspection of divine and self love. This will be particular helpful to those who are very left brained (logical), and need to expand further into their intuitive side (right brain).
