Essential Oil of Juniper
Juniper (Juniperus communis)
Juniper berry is another culinary herb often found in sauerkraut, goulash and as a major component of Gin, as well as being used in natural skin care and traditional medicine. Juniper is another member of the conifer Family (Coniferae) and the clear, liquid essential oil is extracted from the berries by steam distillation. It grows as a small hardwood bush found in Central and Southern Europe, Sweden and Canada.
Juniper was used to burn as incense by earlier civilisations. It was used in Tibet for both religious and medical purposes. The French used to burn a mixture of juniper twigs and rosemary leaves in hospital wards and sick rooms, to purify the air.
The essential oil of Juniper has a very slight greenish-yellow tinge and a pleasant odour. Like oils of cypress and pine it makes a refreshing bath oil and is both stimulating and relaxing.
