Wintergreen oil is extracted from a shrubby evergreen plant called Gaultheria procumbens, which is from the Ericaceae plant family. Wintergreen is native to North America, mainly in Northeast United States and Canada. This low-growing shrub thrives best in rich, organic soils in shady locations, such as on mountains and forests in cool, moist regions.
Wintergreen's medicinal uses have been widely known for many centuries, particularly by the Native Americans, who used the leaves to help treat respiratory tract infections. They also chewed the leaves to increase endurance and respiratory capacity, helping them run long distances. Native tribes such as Ojibwes and Mohawks also drank wintergreen tea as a healthful medicinal beverage.
