Scientifically known as Gultheria fragrantissima or the Wintergreen Essential Oil, this extract is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, anti-bacterial, antiseptic and analgesic benefits.

Usage of (Gandhpura oil) for relieving joint pains
The regular usage of Gandhpura oil followed by a gentle massage onto the affected area is known to provide an immediate relief, along with long lasting results. Besides, it also has some amazing aromatic properties. Since ‘fragrant’ forms a part of its name, its pleasant and distinctive fragrance help further increase the relief factor offered by the oil. Not only this, the oil also exhibits promising antispasmodic properties in terms of providing relief from a variety of spasms, including those associated with muscular, digestive, respiratory as well as nervous systems. The oil also works as a great source of stimulator, repellent and pain killer.
The Wintergreen tree is basically native to North American regions, as well as various hilly areas of the Indian Subcontinent. The essential oil extract is obtained by steam distillation of its leaves, a process which gives us two main components, known as gaultherilene and methyl salicylate. The latter, which is actually the chief component, possesses aspirin-type properties and happens to be used as an important ingredient in a variety of joint-pain relieving oils and ointments. Methyl salicylate is known to induce an anaesthetic effect on the nerves surrounding the joint, thus relieving the pain to some extent. The massage that is performed using this particular oil helps increase blood circulation and as well it provides warmth and comfort to the joint in pain, thus inducing relaxation around there.
Apart from those mentioned above, Gandhpura oil also provides a variety of other side benefits such as eliminating foul smell owing to its aromatic properties, acting as an effective astringent, preventing microbial infections, stimulating flow during menstruation, etc. However, a word of caution here: as enticing as its usage may appear, please note that this oil, owing to the presence of methyl salicylate, is also known to be highly poisonous in nature. Therefore, the oil should only be used for topical purposes. The same should never be consumed orally, or inhaled such as by means of aromatherapy. Besides, even for topical application, make sure to take only small amount and use it for gently massaging all around the affected area.
