JUNIPER BERRY | Pure Essential Oil
Juniper berry essential oil is distilled from the berries of the common juniper, Juniperus communis, a species of conifer which has the largest geographical range of any woody plant, throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in North America, Europe and Asia. The branches and berries of the tree have been used for medicinal and spiritual purposes since ancient times. The Old Testament includes several references to the juniper tree, and is has been used by many First Nations. It is also a key ingredient in many types of ritual incense.
The oil is clear or pale yellow in colour and has a crisp, balsamic, woodsy scent reminiscent of pine needles, with a sweet, almost fruity undertone.
It is traditionally used to flavour gin and in aromatherapy to detoxify the body (and air), to improve respiratory function, and to promote restful sleep. In magic, it is used to purify, protect, and ward off negativity.
It blends well with clary sage, sandalwood, bergamot, geranium, marjoram, rosemary, chamomile, and eucalyptus.
Characteristics: woody, sweet, earthy, balsamic
Presented in a 5ml or 15ml black glass bottle with euro dropper.
