Juniper Essential Oils
Juniper has long been associated with a facility to remove obstacles, bringing to the surface and eliminating suppressed emotions and negative memories. A purifier on many levels, as well as helping to dispel nervous tension and stress, it has an affinity with systems of physical elimination. Its decongesting property makes it a useful addition to a massage blend for cellulite and water retention (blend with cypress), and particularly suitable for oily skin. Use juniper in the bath, in a compress, and in aromatherapy massage, and to uplift the spirits in a room diffuser. Juniper oil also blends well with cedar, citrus essential oils, lavender, and clary sage.
