What Is Juniper Berry Oil?
Juniper (Juniperus communis) is a coniferous evergreen shrub that belongs to the pine family (Cupressaceae) and is commonly found on mountains in North America, Europe and Southwest Asia. Both the branches and the berries of the leaves have been used since ancient times for medicinal and spiritual purposes.
Juniper essential oil is traditionally steam-distilled from the needles, twigs, wood and berries. However, juniper berry oil, which is extracted solely from steam distilling the berries, is superior in quality. It's a pale oil with a watery viscosity and a fresh, clear and slightly woody and fruity fragrance.
