Reported results from their experiments indicated that “the most potent formulation was achieved when methyl salicylate (wintergreen oil), isopropanol and menthol were combined with emu oil” Apparently, a “synergistic effect was occurring between the emu oil and the methyl salicylate, for the anti-inflammatory activity of the combination was greater than the sum of either component when used alone (with isopropanol).”
