With the same chemical property as aspirin, wintergreen is good at anything you’d use an OTC painkiller for (cramps, hangovers, you name it). Put one drop behind your ears or on your temple for headaches or rub it on an injured area of your body for pain relief.
Beware: it’s possible to OD (similar to downing a whole bottle of aspirin) on this oil so take it easy. If you’re looking for deeper essential oil cuts, peppermint and ginger are also strong pain relievers—the former can be used as a mild anesthetic. The more you know.
