The big debate is which is the best mint out there and we know that there are many loyalists to Peppermint or Spearmint, but Wintergreen is definitely an unsung hero. Wintergreen is such a diverse scent and can be found in everything from those identifiable pink mints, gum, and even our favourite post-workout muscle rubs. We also use Wintergreen in one of our most popular blends, Afternoon Pick Me Up, where it lends it familiar uplifting aroma.
