Collection: Juniper Berry Essential Oil

What is Juniper Berry Essential Oil? 

Juniper berry essential oil is extracted from juniper berries—the seed cones of coniferous juniper trees, mainly Juniperus communis. (Juniper berries are also used to make gin.) The essential oil is characterised by a refreshingly spicy, woody scent with citrus notes, and blends well with grapefruit essential oil and sweet orange essential oil. This is a versatile oil that is used in aromatherapy for the relief of anxiety and stress.

Properties

 Juniper berry essential oil is known for its antiseptic, anti-rheumatic, depurative and astringent properties. Its chemical profile includes a high pinene content, as well as  erpineol and terpinene.

For this reason, it has chiefly been used in the treatment of eczema and dandruff—it is an excellent skin toner—however it has also been used to regulate menstrual cycles and treat digestive issues.
