Radiant. Hot. Curative.

History:

Traces of Juniper Berry oil have been found in home dwellings and in clay pots dating from over 4,000 years ago. Initially celebrated for its antiseptic properties, Juniper Berry was used by everyone from the ancient Egyptians during burial ceremonies to medieval Europeans anxious to ward off cholera and typhoid.
