RE: [Histonet] Oil of wintergreen

From:Margaret Blount

I had to laugh at your comments, Terry, I guess you are right. Isn't oil of
wintergreen methyl salicylate or something of the sort? Older chemistry
books or the Merck Index should tell us the correct chemical name and then
it should be easy to source.

Sorry I can't help with a US supply Dorothy, but can't help the comment that
I would prefer the stink of a body to that of oil of Wintergreen.

Does anyone know where oil of wintergreen can be purchased?  The PA's at our
facility used to use this product in the morgue to take care of odors while
working on an autopsy.  I cannot locate the product and was wondering if
anyone could help me or what else is recommended?  This is not an area that
I am familiar with and am fairly new to my position here!!  Thanks ahead of
time for any and all help!!
