Wintergreen plant comes from the genus of evergreen flowering shrubs, the 200 special species. Wintergreen in the USA is popular for its therapeutic properties. It is said that the wintergreen essential oil has powerful spiritual and emotional benefits when used in aromatherapy.

The odour of wintergreen alone in the air is an advantage enough. Wintergreen has historically been used in spiritual ceremonies, particularly during meditations as it awakens the five senses.
