It smells EXACTLY like pepto bismol to me. Considered making a pink soap in round moulds and calling them pepto soaps, otherwise i will not use it in soap. Might look up muscle recipes for it i guess - or give it away.

This product smells like toothpaste to me. It has a mint type undertone but it really smells like wintergreen gum or toothpaste to me. It is true to it's name and description, however I will not be purchasing it again as it is definately not my favorite.

I ordered this to compare to White Birch. Love the scent, and will experiment with the analgesic effect on sore muscles.

Gorgeous scent, just like the lifesavers - my favorite mint! Smells a lot like Rub A535 (which I love), and would be perfect for muscle rubs. However, WARNING, it is HIGHLY TOXIC if ingested. Like 1 ml will kill a child.

great price...good product, but must exercise caution as this essential oil is considered dangerous in the wrong hands. As with any product, all information should be read carefully and theraputic use should be left to those who are qualified. (As a hobbyist I know my limits).

I am happy to recommend Oil of Wintergreeen from this site. It is the best quality oil and half the price of my previous supplier. It has been temporarily out of stock in the past and one day when I was ordering other oils from the New Directions, I was blessed to find that it was available in abundance. I purchased over $500.00 worth at that time so I would have a supply for a time. Today when I checked the site for other matters I noticed that it was out of stock again. I was very grateful that I had purchased the quanity that I did a short time ago. I guess having the supply low and the demand high speaks volumes in itself!
