Juniper Essential Oil Uses

Juniper Berry is known to inhibit the growth of germs, cleanse and detoxify. It is a refreshing tonic and when used in skincare may help with acne due to its anti-bacterial properties.
Native Americans use juniper berries for medicinal applications and burn the berries to cleanse and purify the air psychically and energetically.
Emotionally, Juniper Berry Essential Oil is calming and helps to ease stress without imparting the sedative effects that clary sage and the chamomiles are known for. Spiritually, Juniper Berry Essential Oil cleanses and purifies the air when we are using in a diffuser. It is a good choice for use during meditation.
Juniper Oil has a distinctive aroma that is woody, sweet, fresh and crisp. Juniper Berry Essential Oil blends well with wood oils like cedarwood, sandalwood, rosewood and other conifers like cypress and fir needle. Enjoy the blended with clary sage, or the grounding base notes of vetiver or patchouli. It is a wonderful combination with citrus oils including orange or grapefruit.
