For Mr.P N Das

Taken in Bengaluru in July 2010.

Gaultheria procumbensWintergreen, the oil of which acts like topical aspirin and is used for relief from musculoskeletal inflammation, rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis, neck pain, whiplash injuries, chronic joint and muscle pain. It looks beautiful in a garden as a ground-cover under trees as it requires shade.
Oil of wintergreen, when applied over sore muscles and joints, can provide the same relief as one would get from taking an aspirin. Science has revealed that the key to wintergreen action is linked to the action of Aspirin. Wintergreen oil is comprised of a compound known as methyl salicylate, aspirin is salicylic acid. Wrap arthritic joints in wintergreen poultices to great effect! It could be used internally as a tea to speed the process on along.
