While traveling out west, I became interested in Juniper Essential Oil. My traveling companions and I saw many Juniper bushes as they are quite abundant throughout the Southwestern Desert. One of our tour guides told us Juniper has antiseptic properties and is used in the production of gin.
After I learned that, I started doing a little research and discovered that during times of famine, the Pueblo Indians ate Juniper berries. The Hopi and Zuni liked them with there Piki bread, while the Navajo considered Juniper.
Juniper Essential Oil has properties as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, cleanser, detoxifier, diuretic, stimulant, and tonic. Common primary uses include acne, alcoholism, dermatitis/eczema, kidney stones, and tinnitus.
Berries and stems are steam distilled to produce Young Living Juniper Essential Oil. Juniper can be applied to flex points or on the area of concern. Apply to forehead to enhance optimism and cheeks for confidence. Use in your diffuser for health, love, and peace.
Juniper is one of the free oils for the month of May, so I spent the necessary PV to receive it. I’ll give you an update to let you know what I think about it.
