The Juniper plant is a tough, robust evergreen with small green berries that can take up to two years to ripen. Juniper was burnt in the sickrooms of ancient Greece to purify the environment and used during the mummification process in ancient Egypt. Modern uses however are far less melancholic. Topical treatments of Juniper will help to warm tired or aching muscles, relieve the symptoms of arthritis and shift excess fluid from the system. When used in a diffuser, this pungent, cleansing fragrance clears the mind of negative thoughts and improves mental concentration.
