Wintergreen is part of a large botanical family of usually low plants: ericaceae. And there is over 180 species of wintergreen. But even though most of them are tiny plants, close to the ground, some can rise up to several meters high.
It likes growing in water and always stands very close to this element. Not only does it require moisture, high humidity, but it gives its essential oil the fragrance we know only when the leaves macerate in warm water for a few days.
Athletes identify this smell very quickly for it is a traditional component of all balms ... successfully! Its main molecule, methyl salicylate, is very close in structure to that of aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, and several properties of these two are identical. So much for soreness!
Wintergreen bears beautiful berries which colour varies from one species to another. Usually bright red, they can turn completely white. Some species' are edible and as they taste relatively minty, they are often reminiscent of another plant... These complex smells and tastes have earned to be incorporated into chewing gums.

However, no interaction was observedand natural and stable methyl salicylate in a pure and natural essential oil is not haemo-lequifying but adaptive at this scale.
In case of acetaminophen: interactions suspected (then: nephrotoxicity). Indeed, interactionsbetween acetyl salicylic acid and acetaminophen are well documented. Therefore, exacerbated ruleof thumb concerning wintergreen but let us await further information.
Keep out of reach of children.
Children and pregnant women: no additional contraindication known to this day withinphysiological dosage.
