Juniper berry’s function as a diuretic, antispasmodic, antirheumatic, and a detoxifier make it a great choice for use in massage oils for water retention, overworked or knotted muscles, and arthritis. Juniper berry is also useful for acne to dilute and apply topically to spot treat. For those suffering from embarrassing gas, apply to the abdomen. No matter how you choose to use yours, juniper berry’s wonderful crisp, fresh aroma is sure to win you over. Juniper blends well with many other essential oils like citrus oils and oils with herbal aromas like lavender and rosemary. Try blending and diffusing juniper berry with cypress for a fresh woodsy pick-me-up scent.

We recommend to always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil before topical or internal use (see internal use document). If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (If it is not already diluted, dilute with a carrier oil) If redness, itchiness, or inflammation occurs, discontinue use or use a greater dilution with a carrier oil.

The dominant monoterpenes are noted for their analgesic, antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory actions, supporting the use of Juniper Berry essential oil for alleviating pain and inflammation. Akkol et al. (2009) demonstrated that Juniper Berry oil has remarkable anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities.

Gliŝić et al. (2007) found that although Juniper Berry has weak antimicrobial activity, fractions with a high α-pinene content, or high α-pinene plus sabinene, displayed good antimicrobial actions, especially antifungal activity.

Some of the dominant components, such as α-pinene, have good antifungal (anti-yeast) activity
