Ah, the fresh scent of wintergreen! It can be quite overpowering when used in many creams for aches and pains. Our Pain Relief Cream uses it judiciously, along with eucalyptus, so go ahead and use Ceres Pain Relief Cream without worrying about how you smell after it's used! It is a great oil when used in small amounts. In massive amounts, it can be toxic. Don't let that stop you from enjoying a wee bit.
