About the Plant:

While the Juniper Berry might look like the blueberry, they are in fact very different species. The Juniper Berries are tiny, hard blue berries that grow in central Europe on an evergreen shrub that can reach 18 feet in height. The bush has beautiful silvery-green needles with little white flowers.

Where it Grows:

The Juniper shrub is native to the Northern Hemisphere. It is best grown in northern Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, and France. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to receive Certified Organic Juniper Berry Essential Oil from Bosnia and Hercegovina.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Woody, fresh Juniper Berries are best known for their purifying and detoxifying qualities. They have been used for centuries for these purposes. Until recently, hospitals in France would burn sprigs of Juniper Berry in hallways to clear the air and prevent infections from spreading. Ancient Greeks would burn sticks of Juniper Berry incense to ward off epidemics and as a fumigant to repel insects. Native Americans and Tibetans used Juniper Berries for ceremonial purposes.

Juniper Berries are used in the cuisine of many countries to add a distinctly spicy bitterness to meats, sauces, and baked goods. They are even an ingredient in gin and other spirits. Juniper Berry Essential Oil has been used therapeutically for centuries for its calming, diuretic effects on flatulence (gas), colic, worms, and infections in the intestines. The oil is used in household products for cleaning and disinfecting and as a fragrance in perfumes and soaps.
