Ampersand Essential Oils
Did you know that juniper berries aren’t really berries? Whoever gave them their name must have been fooled by their looks, because although they resemble berries, they’re actually seed cones.
There’s a fun fact for the day. But regardless, a powerful essential oil is distilled from these berry-like seed cones. Juniper Berry Essential Oil has been used traditionally in medicine, and also to flavor beer and gin. Its rich scent is a beautiful blend of fruity and woodsy—excellent for diffusing in your home in the winter.
Medicinally, Juniper Berry Essential Oil is a great option for people struggling with digestive issues, muscular aches and pains, bronchitis, acne, urinary tract infections, anxiety, and more.
