Product Details

One ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

Wintergreen Leaf (Gaultheria procumbens) has a rich history of use by indigenous peoples of North America. The leaves and berries were brewed into tea for medicinal purposes, with uses documented for treating stomachaches, coughs, and fever. The strong wintergreen flavor also made it a popular culinary ingredient. Eastern tribes would chew on the leaves for a minty taste and add them to stews for a unique flavor profile.

An active ingredient in wintergreen, methyl salicylate, has pain-relieving properties and was used topically to treat muscle aches and rheumatism. Wintergreen oil was also used as a flavoring agent in various products like toothpaste, candy, and chewing gum due to its minty taste.

Magically, wintergreen has been associated with protection and love. Some cultures believed burning the leaves or twigs could ward off evil spirits and create a safe space. In love magic, wintergreen tea was sometimes consumed as a love charm or aphrodisiac.
