Distributed throughout the Northern Hemisphere, Juniperus communis, the Common Juniper, is an aromatic evergreen shrub belongs to the genus Cupressus of the family Cupressaceae. Depending on the altitude at which it is cultivated, the plant can reach 3 meters tall or higher. It has narrow, needle-like leaves growing oppositely in whorls of 3. The fruits are berry-like and small, ranging from 6 to 10 mm in diameter. The berries are green at first, but turn dark blue in the second year, when they are considered ripe. Juniperus is a variable species with many geographical varieties; however, only berries from Juniperus communis yield good quality essential oil.

Perhaps, one of the most important functions of Juniper Berry essential oil is the diuretic action. It has a special affinity with the urinogenital tract and will dramatically reduce retention of urine. It can be used externally as a cleanser, to help the body release fluids and throw off toxic wastes. It is also one of the best oils for treating minor uncomplicated genitourinary tract infection such as cystitis, which often responds very well to aromatherapy.

Juniper Berry oil is also a very good astringent, and is used in the external treatment of hemorrhoids either in the bath or as a local wash. The essential oil can also be a great help in several skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis and possibly psoriasis.

The aroma is distinctively rich, warm, floral and sweetly exotic. It has fresh, clean, turpentine top notes and smoky, balsamic, woody, pepper undertones.

Juniper Berry essential oil helps to fight anxiety, mental fatigue, nervous tension and stress. It can clear mental clutter and confusion, revive exhausted emotions, and strengthen nerves. It also helps to neutralize negative emotions, particularly anger, aggression, or confusion, and imparts a feeling of emotional cleanliness and spiritual purity.
