As the name of this hydrosol might be giving you ideas, but this hydrosol is not ‘literally’ meant for winters. This hydrosol, in fact, is quite a boon for people suffering from a number of health related problems like arthritis, rheumatism, would go in detail about this in the following paragraph.

The Oil of Wintergreen is a world famous name. It is more popular with the people suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, gout and pain in bones and joints due to other reasons. This oil can be found in almost every household. This oil is easily available and can even be found in general stores. Wintergreen is a tree native to North America and it was they who believed to have discovered the use of its oil to drive away pain in muscles and joints.

  • Analgesic: I don’t think that I need to introduce this property of Wintergreen Essential Oil to you, because it is one of the properties for which is known around the world. When rubbed on the paining spot, this oil is readily absorbed through the skin and the presence of Menthyl Salicylate induces numbness and a sort of anaesthetic effect in the nerves present in that area. It also increases circulation of blood and brings warmth to the place (this warmth can very well be experienced). This way, it fights pain.
  • Anodyne: This is the property by virtue of which an agent can eliminate pain and induce relaxations. So, it is a combined effect of an analgesic and a relaxant. Hence Wintergreen Essential Oil will eradicate pain and will drive away stress and tension. What a pleasant way of getting a sound sleep at the end of the day for those who cannot sleep due to pain or stress.
  • Anti Rheumatic & Anti Arthritic: This property of Essential Oil of Wintergreen is based on the stimulating property of this oil. This oil fights rheumatism and arthritis in two ways. First, when applied externally, it easily penetrates through the skin in the muscles and tissues and stimulates circulation of blood there. This, apart from bringing warmth to the affected place, helps clear obstructions in the flow of blood (which is one of the major causes behind rheumatism and arthritis) and it does not let toxins, like uric acid, accumulate at a place.

The botanical name of this shrub is Gaultheria Procumbens. The essential oil of this plant is extracted by steam distillation of its leaves. Menthyl Salicylate and Gaultherilene are the two main components of this essential oil and this Menthyl Salicylate forms an integral part of almost every anti arthritic and anti pain balm (for muscular and joint pain) available in the market.

This wonderful hydrosol is not all that famous if I tell you frankly, but that has nothing to do with its many benefits. The hydrosol is quite amazing at dealing wwith a number of diseases. The hydrosol, people often say, this a magic potion.

The health benefits of Vetiver Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like anti inflammatory, anti septic, aphrodisiac, cicatrisant, nervine, sedative, tonic and vulnerary.

If I say Vetiver is famous all over the Indian Subcontinent, it may be difficult to understand for many since they are not well acquainted with this name. Instead, it is very much popular by the name of “Khus” or “Khus-Khus” and it is extensively used in the perfume, cooling, food and beverages industries. The botanical name of vetiver is Vetiveria Zizanoides or Andropogon Muricatus.

This grass has a very pleasant and mild earthy, musky smell which has a cooling effect on the body and the mind. The dried grass and its roots are used to thatch the side panels of water based room and window coolers, since it cools and adds its fragrance to the moist air. It is also used to thatch roofs of earthen houses and its mattresses are used as curtains on doors and windows, which, apart from cooling and scenting the rooms, keeps insects away. That is why its demand rises excessively during summers, particularly in hot countries like India and its neighbours.

  • Anti Inflammatory: The very soothing and cooling effect of this essential oil calms and pacifies all sorts of inflammations. But it is particularly good in giving relief from inflammations in circulatory system and nervous system.
  • Aphrodisiac: Mixed in sorbets and beverages as a flavouring agent, this oil has an aphrodisiac effect. It enhances libido and gives arousals. Since sex has more to do with the psychology (brain) than the physiology, remedy for most of the sexual disorders like frigidity, lack of libido, impotence etc. lays in the brain. Certain components of this oil stimulate those portions of brain and the problems are over.

The Essential Oil of Vetiver is obtained through steam distillation of its roots and its main components are alpha vetivone, benzoic acid, beta vetivone, furfurol, vetiverol, vetivene and vetivenyl vetivenate. Its essential oil is also used extensively in perfume industries (perfumes for body, room fresheners, coolers etc.), cosmetics, soaps, oils and as a flavouring agent in beverages and sorbets and food stuffs.
