Finest Origin - Highest Grade

The wildcrafted wintergreen shrubs thrive in the vastness of the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, at 2,000-2,800m elevation. The environment, with its fresh and clear air, clean soil, strong winds and significant fluctuations in temperature, allows for optimal growth of the plants. They are able to produce a balanced ratio of unique components including methyl and ethyl salicylates.

Between April and May and August and November, leaves and twigs are gently harvested from the wild bushes using a sickle. They are collected in baskets, and brought to the local distillery where they are processed via steam distillation.

Farm

We source this essential oil from a small cooperative located in the Himalayas, in Nepal. The enterprise has been producing essential oils from indigenous plants since 2006, and unites several small farms. Each farm either cultivates its own plants to strict organic standards, or sources wildcrafted plants, sometimes growing at altitudes of up to 2,800m. The plants, which thrive in the vast, untouched nature, are harvested by hand and with sickles. They are then carried in baskets to local distilleries, where they are gently processed via steam distillation. The production process is a labour of love for the members of the cooperative, and the resulting products are of high quality. All essential oils from the producer are certified with the EU organic seal.

Wintergreen

Wintergreen is an evergreen shrub which belongs to the Ericaceae family and thrives in the forests of Nepal, China and North America. It has small, dark green leaves, and can grow up to 20cm tall. It produces small, deep-red berries.

Aroma

The minty-sweet aroma has a stimulating yet relaxing effect, which allows for mental flexibility.
