Distil Wintergreen Pain and Cold Rub Oil, is made by blending Grapeseed Oil with a blend of oils such as Wintergreen Essential oil, Peppermint Oil, Clove Oil and Ginger Oil. Wintergreen Oil is incredibly powerful when it comes to relieving pain as it contains naturally occuring methyl salicylate. The concentration of methyl salicylate is so high that 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of wintergreen oil is the equivalent of roughly 21 adult aspirin tablets. It safely treats painful inflammation of muscles and joints as well. Peppermint essential oil rapidly helps to locally block pain where it is applied. At first it will creates a cooling sensation, which then tends to get warmer. Both the heat and the coolness can help relax sore muscles in their own ways, while the refreshing smell can help clear a pain-clouded mind. Clove essential oil is a topical analgesic (pain-killer) for sore muscles. Eugenol, the component mainly responsible for killing the pain, is readily absorbed through skin and it is pretty potent. Ginger essential oil creates a lovely warming sensation that can help relax and un-knot tight muscles. It also reduces the production of cytokines, which are substances that regulate the immune system and are linked to inflammation and the pain associated with it.
