Wintergreen is the name commonly applied to plants whose leave remain green throughout the winter as well as the rest of the year. Native Americans would carefully harvest the leaves, taking care to only take a little so that the plants could regenerate. They would commonly brewed tea from these leaves, seeing it as a powerful aid in treating rheumatic symptoms, headaches, fevers sore throats and other such ailments involved with the common cold and general illness. Later, during the American Revolution, Wintergreen was used by the early Americans as a substitute for tea, which had become scarce during the war. Today, it is quite commonly seen as a flavoring agent for toothpaste, chewing gum, soft drinks, confectionaries and numerous other commercial products.
