Juniper berry essential oil is often used in aromatherapy for its pleasant, refreshing aroma.
The oil comes from the berries of a needle-like evergreen shrub native to North America and Europe.
How To Use Juniper Berry Essential Oil
When properly diluted and tested for allergic reactions, juniper oil is safe to use for your hair and skin. Do not use essential oils internally.
For skin care
Use diluted with a carrier oil on the skin. Always do a spot test first to see if you are not sensitive to the oil. Another option is to add a few drops to a body lotion or skin cream.
While it is not recommended to inhale juniper essential oil directly from the bottle, consider diffusing the oil for aromatherapy with a diffuser.
