Juniperberry Aromatherapy Shower Gel

We are pleased to offer this sweet and woody essential oil in our 100% plant based preservative shower gel.

Botanical name (Juniperus communis). Plant part berry. Method of extraction steam distillation. Country of origin India.

Properties: This oil is known as an antiseptic, antirheumatic, antispasmodic, stimulating, astringent, diuretic, mood enhancement, rubefacient and vulnerary.

Simply apply a diluted amount of this oil on wounds, or use it when blended with skin cream, lotion or carrier oil and it is stated to help wounds heal faster and be protected from infections. Other benefits is stated to relieve pain associated with rheumatism and arthritis.

As the name goes, rubefacient means an agent that makes your face look red. However, this is not limited to just the face, but also with the rest of the body. Such an agent, when applied to the skin when diluted into a skin cream, lotion or carrier oil increases blood circulation just below the skin to such an extent that it begins to look red in color. This may also cause irritation on the skin if applied in excess. Again, increased blood circulation below the skin certainly benefits it and keeps it healthy and well-oxygenated.

Most research studies states that the oil is most commonly used in natural remedies for sore throat and respiratory infections, fatigue, muscle aches and arthritis. Helps with insomnia, use in a pocket refillable inhaler or by placing a charged cotton ball under the pillowcase. With natural antibacterial abilities, juniperberry essential oil is one of the most popular natural remedies for fighting skin irritations like rash or eczema and infections. Due to its antiseptic abilities, it can serve as a home remedy for acne.

Some people also like to use juniperberry oil for hair and scalp concerns like dandruff. For hair and scalp, you can add a few drops to your shampoo and or conditioner.

The smell of juniperberries offers emotional support and reduce physical and emotional signs of stress.

Just like citronella oil, the scent of juniperberry may naturally repel bugs like mosquitoes according to scientific research. Spray it on your clothes, mix it with a carrier oil, cream or lotion and massage into your skin, or diffuse it indoors and outdoors to purify the air and help prevent bug bites. You can even include it in your own homemade bug spray.

Protect your home from insects by adding several drops of the oil to a 2 ounce spray bottle of warm water, shake and spray.

Whether you're looking for a better household cleaner or a natural antiseptic for skin or respiratory infections, juniperberry essential oil may be one answer. Its antimicrobial properties help to kill bacteria and provide what could be a potent treatment for simple infections. Some studies suggest this oil might be effective against bacteria and fungi that are resistant to antibiotics. To help prevent or reduce bacterial strains from spreading within your home, use juniperberry oil on kitchen and bathroom surfaces or appliances. When diffused indoors, it absorbs odors from your home while also purifying the air.

Disinfect your home by adding 5 drops of the oil to a 2 ounce spray bottle of warm water, shake and spray to disinfect the surfaces.
