About Methyl Salicylate:

Methyl Salicylate, better known as the oil of wintergreen or wintergreen oil, is an organic ester that is naturally produced by several species of plants, particularly wintergreens. It is a viscous colourless liquid releasing sweet fruity odour reminiscent of root beer. It has minty taste and aroma and thus, it is often used to prepare mint candies. It can be produced synthetically and is utilised as a flavouring and fragrance ingredient in foods, beverages, and many other products.
