Aromatherapist Recommendations:

  • Juniperberry has a bittersweet, fresh, astringent aroma and is clear in colour. There are several types of oil produced from the Juniper plant. One is the superior quality Juniper berry oil, made from the berries and the other main one, often referred to as Juniper oil, is an inferior product distilled from the twigs and leaves.  Some Juniper oils are produced as a by-product of the fermentation process. Our Juniper berry oil is steam distilled from premier-grade Juniper berries, giving an excellent, high quality oil, ideal for aromatherapy.
