Juniper Berry Essential Oil
Juniper Berry, Juniperas communis, extracted from the crushed dried berries, has a warm, smoky, peppery, aroma that was once thought to "cleanse the soul." Juniper essential oil, a well known antiseptic, was used to treat wounded soldiers and juniper was burnt in French hospitals and used by Native Americans to clean the air. Juniper Berry oil tones the skin and is used for acne, eczema, oily skin, and psoriasis. A natural deodorant, juniper berry oil, is used in massage oils, liniments, and baths to treat arthritic and rheumatic pain, hemorrhoids, fluid retention (especially before menstruation), and bladder infection. Steam inhalation may relieve bronchial congestion. It is also an insect repellent.
In hair care, juniper balances oil production and stimulates the scalp to relieve dandruff and promote hair growth.
Aromatherapy Properties: the aroma lifts the spirit, helps calm the nerves and relieve anxiety, nervous tension, insomnia, and mental fatigue. Juniper Berry essential oil aromatherapy should not be used when pregnant.
