Organic wintergreen (gaultheria) essential oil
This small shrub is typical of Nepalese flora and belongs to the same family as the blueberry and heather. It likes damp undergrowth with acidic soils and is remarkably resistant to the low temperatures of the Himalayas. It produces small scarlet fruits every winter. Its essential oil, extracted from its dark green evergreen leaves, has a characteristically intense, spicy, caramelised smell.
