SAFETY NOTICE: Due to the methyl salicylate in Wintergreen essential oil, the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) is requiring that this product be provided with a child-resistant cap. We have updated our packaging to meet the current requirements. We have discontinued offering 240 ml bottles of wintergreen due to the inability to get a child-proof cap for the 240 ml bottles. As with all essential oils, it is important to keep them out of reach of children.
