JUNIPER BERRY, Organic wild harvested in Austria LIMITED STOCK
This version is seemingly more subtle yet at the same time stronger than the Russian distilled essential oil.
Other than in times of pregnancy Juniper is a great boon to wellness. Juniper supports the immune and lymphatic systems as a detoxifying, purifying and healing tonic for the body’s energy flow. It functions as a hepatic, assisting the liver and minimizing ulcers. Historically noted as an important hepatic by Pliny and Galen who recommended its use for liver purification. The kidneys benefits from this diuretic herb especially after any over indulgence. It is interesting to note the Gin comes from Juniper berries and that these berries also assist in the relief of hang overs!
Juniper remains in high esteem for the restorative value it imparts. This essential oil must be used with care and avoided during pregnancy. As with many potent essential plant oils it is best added in combination with other botanicals that lend balancing benefits. This plant oil is helpful in the reduction of cellulite and accumulated toxic build up in the body. Juniper will charge a blend with its stimulating properties directly into the bloodstream and lymph system to carry out waste and renew the blood.
The way in which the plant grows often indicates its usage. With Juniper the twisted bark reveals the possibility of twisted joints and uneasy conditions that require purification that the berries readily offer. It is warming as it increases blood flow which reduces swelling, lessening some arthritic and thematic pain. Other benefits include healing ulcers, gout, sores, wounds and toothaches. It will reduce acne afflictions when added to complexion formulations.
Juniper has perky essence. The scent smells clear and crisp so as to invigorate the mind and ease stress of apathy. In a personal scent it adds a nice spicy scent to energize and jazz up a parfum or body anointment blend. It adds a boost to aromatic elixirs in rejoining strength to tired Spirits. Juniper centers the self with the many rejuvenating qualities it shares. This is traditionally used to protect one from any malevolent forces whether they be biological or metaphysical.
