Move over gin and tonic...

Juniper is more than just a nightcap! A natural detoxifier and cleanser, juniper essential oil is steam distilled from the aerial parts of the plant, most notably the edible berries. The scent is fresh and clean, with a slight woody and even fruity sweetness.

Juniper is one of the oldest aromatherapeutic and ritualistic plants, used historically to fend off evil spirits and illness. The aroma of juniper essential oil will lift and fortify one’s mood and relieve tension and mental exhaustion. A few drops in the bath or in a facial steam calms the nerves and soothe headaches.

On the surface, juniper essential oil is a wonderful non-sensitizing tonic for blocked pores, oily skin and irritated skin conditions. It also supports hair follicles and will help to prevent hair loss. Suffering from rheumatism? Try a few drops in a carrier oil massaged into skin.

We’re crazy about this versatile essential oil and use it in our face oil & cleanser, body oil and salt scrub.
