Juniper Berry


Juniper Berry (Latin name Juniperus Communis) is a crisp, somewhat strong scented essential oil and just a small amount adds a crispness to the sweeter floral and citrus blends.

Juniper Berry is an evergreen shrub that grows to approx. 6 ft. tall and has bluish-green needles.The berries change to a dark blue color after 2-3 years and are steam distilled to make the resinous smelling essential oil.


Most of Juniper Berries come from France, Austria, northern Italy, and Bulgaria. These berries were burnt as incense by the ancient Greeks and by the North American indigenous people in their cleansing ceremonies. The Europeans thought of Juniper Berry oil as a cure-all for cholera and typhoid. It was also used in the 10th century by the Vikings to make beer and by the Dutch in the 17th century to make gin.


Juniper Berry essential oil may be useful for:

  • skincare

  • feelings of stress or anxiety

  • muscular pain

  • bruising or swelling

  • feelings ofatigue

Emotionally & spiritually, Juniper Berry is all about transformation. Releasing anything in your life that doesn't resonate with you, as you continue to evolve into who you are choosing to be.


Contraindications: Avoid if pregnant or have kidney issues. May irritate sensitive skin. Always dilute essential oil before topical use. For ages 4 & up
