Allow me to introduce you to Juniper Berry aka Juniperus communis.
Juniper berry is extracted from the berries of the coniferous Juniper tree, once known as “the medicine tree” by early Native Americans.
How I use Juniper Berry Essential Oil
- Multipurpose household cleaner (I add equal drops of Juniper berry, bergamot, and grapefruit to a glass spray bottle and clean everything with it. It works well in my bathroom areas.) Here’s an Amazon link to the glass bottles I use.
- Diffuser – a few drops of juniper berry with drops of bergamot and grapefruit essential oils smells amazing. It also blends well with citrus scents.
- Insect repellent- Please test for sensitives before using on skin.
- face toner (I mix two drops of juniper berry essential oil with witch hazel for toner/cleaner and I also add a few to 1/2 cup coconut oil, whip it together, and apply as a moisturizer). Please test for skin sensitives before using.
- I have also mixed this oil with fractionated coconut oil for use as a massage oil. It’s great for easing tired, achy, muscles.
- aromatic use can help with grounding
- can aid with releasing negative feelings (I add it to my diffuser during meditations)
- I feel this is a great overall oil for energetic work with the chakra system. (I have a separate post planned for why I feel this way about Juniper berry, I will add a link once I publish the post.)
The fragrance of Juniper was used by the Scottish and Tibetans to keep away demons and evil spirits–you can also use it to keep flies and mosquitos away. There’s a win-win. 😉
- eases tension
- positive & uplifting fragrance
- My personal experience is that it can also improve feelings of patience.
- natural skin toner & reduces appearance of skin blemishes
- It supports healthy immune function and response.*
- bug repellent
- household cleaning
Juniper berry is an amazing oil and I’ve barely touched the surface on the benefits and use.
