Juniper berries have a long tradition of use by many cultures as both a spice and medicine. Today they are perhaps best known as the key botanical flavouring in Gin.
Juniper Berry Essential Oil is credited as being a supportive, restoring, and a tonic aid. It is excellent for meditation and is a popular oil in weight loss and detoxification blends, because of its diuretic properties. It is also considered purifying and clearing for the mind.
