Juniper Berry Essential Oil is steam distilled from only the berries of Juniperus communis bushes. Juniper Berry Essential Oil varies, significantly, from the regular Juniper, sometimes called Alpine, and it's important to know which one you are considering. The regular, or Alpine, Juniper, distilled from a combination of the twig, leaf, and berries, must be used with caution, and never by anyone with high blood pressure or kidney disorder, as it has a very powerful diuretic activity. Juniper Berry Essential Oil has a diuretic effect, as well, where it aids in fluid retention, and build up, but with a much more gentle impact than the regular Juniper.
Therapeutic Use: Juniper Berry Essential Oil is well know for it's disinfectant, and purifying, activity and it is one of the most popular oils for diffusing, especially combined with White Sage, where it is used for spiritual clearing and cleansing. It also improves circulation and in massage oils can help with muscle aches, as it eliminates the lactic acid build up at the heart of pain and inflammation. An excellent oil for detoxification of the tissues.
Fragrance Impact: Juniper Berry Essential Oil has a fresh, uplifting fragrance with woody notes. It blends very well with other Conifers, floral, and the Cineol oils. The fragrance will give your products an uplifting impact.
