Juniper Berries are a very fragrant herb. I love their dark purple/blue/black color. Their magickal properties are many. Did you know that the ancient greeks burned juniper to prevent illnesses, even the black plague.
When chewed the berries combat bad breath and aid to heal damaged gums. Juniper oil is used for a variety of ailments including digestive problems, kidney and bladder. Those with kidney disease should avoid it though. In aromatherapy juniper is often found in rub blends as juniper detoxifies & relaxes the body.
