Did you know that Juniper Berry gives gin its distinct aroma and flavour? Yup, we're talking about the alcoholic drink. In fact, the name "gin" is derived from the French word genièvre and the Dutch word jenever - both referring to the seed cone.
Besides lending its "spirit" to the alcoholic drink though, Juniper Berry is also noted for its numerous health benefits and uses. It can work wonders on your skin with its natural cleansing and clarifying properties. If you're worried about commercial skin toner's alcohol content (which can be extremely drying on the skin!), replace it with Juniper Berry essential oil. Dilute with a carrier oil and gently apply for a healthier glow and blemish-free skin!
Like most evergreen shrubs, Juniper berry has a distinctively clean, balsamic, crisp, and woody scent. Diffuse during your yoga or meditation session to feel more calm and grounded. For a refreshed and balanced environment, try blending Juniper Berry with citrus oils and use as a natural air purifier!
