Juniper (Juniperus Communis) is a small tree of the cupressus family, with needle-like leaves, and berries which are at first blue, but turn black after two years, when they are considered ripe. The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation from these berries and its active principles include alphapinene, cadinene, camphene, terpineol, borneol and camphor of jumper. The essential oil is very fluid, and may vary from colourless to yellowy or a pale green. The odour is reminiscent of turpentine or like very high quality artist's oil paints, but is surprisingly pleasing in dilution and especially in blends, to which it gives a characteristic smokey note. The taste is very bitter - not surprising when we consider that Juniper berries are an important ingredient of , which takes its name from the French name for the tree: Genevrier or Genievre.
Juniper has been known since antiquity as an antiseptic and diuretic, and these two properties are important ones in aromatherapy; but it is consider the most important action of Juniper to be detoxification. It is one of the most valuable oils in all situations where the body needs to throw off toxic wastes. Very often, the diuretic action of Juniper will be useful in such situations, too.
Juniper has a special affinity with the urino-genita! tract, being tonic, purifying, antiseptic and stimulant. It is one of the best oils to choose for treating cystitis, pyelitis and urinary stones - though it is vital to ensure that a doctor or medically qualified homoeopath is consulted in any kidney infections. Cystitis often responds very well to aromatherapy treatments, but if there is blood or pus in the urine, or fever, do not delay in getting medical help. The same remarks apply to all cases of pyelitis, though you can very valuably continue with aromatic baths and massage at the same time.
