Juniper Berry 

About Juniper Berry

The common juniper is a small evergreen common in many regions of the world. The wood or branches have been used for millennia in many cultures as an incense for religious and medicinal properties. Tisserand points out in his writings that the French, in earlier times, burned juniper and rosemary twigs in hospitals to purify the air. The essential oils is usually made from the small berries of this shrub. At maturity the berries have ripened from a green to a deep purple color.
