Benefits for health

  • The most important property of Juniper essential oil is detoxification. It is one of the most valuable oils when the body needs to throw off toxins.
  • Juniper is also recommended for treatment of conditions related to urino-genital tract, as it is a tonic, purifying and stimulating oil. It is notably excellent for treating cystitis and urinary stones. It can relieve retention of urine (notably for men suffering from a prostate problem)
  • Women suffering from scanty or missing periods can be treated with Juniper (use it in baths or in a massage oil used over the abdomen).
  • To treat acne, essential oil of Juniper is a very good choice, especially for young boys, who will accept it more easily due to its woody smell (the other oils for acne have a sweeter scent that can be considered feminine by them).
  • Juniper oil is also useful for cellulitis. Due to its detoxifying effect, it will allow you to get rid of toxins and reduce fluid retention.
  • It is also useful for skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Have in mind that Juniper works on eliminating toxic substances from the body. Therefore, it is slow to act and at first, it may appear worse (notably when treating skin conditions) because toxins are eliminated through the skin.

Emotional and psychological properties

  • It helps when trying to relax. Useful in case of passive meditation (its soporific action can disturb the active meditation). If inhaled before bedtime, it will encourage dreams.
  • Strengthens the will. Helps re-found self-love, when trust is lost.
  • Helps overcome the fear of failure.

Safety / contraindications

  • Non-toxic
  • Non-sensitizing
  • May be slightly irritating
  • Must not be used during pregnancy, as it stimulates the uterine muscle.
  • Not recommended to use it if you have a kidney disease.
