Mountain Juniper Berry Essential Oil or Rocky Mountain Juniper Berry are common names for this special variety of Juniper. We source this oil directly from a small family distiller in the Arizona desert.
In fact, when we place our order, the distiller obtains a permit from the national park to pick the berries, and we receive the oil approximately 2 months after the oil is distilled and has had time to cure. The Juniper trees grow wild at 7,000ft elevation in the Arizona Desert.
Mountain Juniper berry essential oil is useful for the following:
- Improved circulation
- Cramps, whether it is muscular, intestinal or respiratory
- Toothaches and general gum health
- Intestinal Gas and Bloating
- Blood detoxification, cellulite and water retention
- Bringing color into the Skin
- Alterness and increased energy
- Stomach ulcers and bile regulation
- Toning muscles, skin and tissues
- Wound healing
Mountain Juniper Berry essential oil is different not only in aroma, but it’s known as the kidney friendly Juniper because it contains only trace amount of sabinenes, the chemical that makes common Juniper Berry (juniperus communis) oil toxic to the kidneys when used consistently.
While it’s recommended that the more common Juniper Berry essential oil be discontinued for 2 weeks after 6 weeks of of consistent use, this variety can be used as long and as often as desired.
Our founder, Hope Johnson loves to use this Juniper Berry oil in the shower, by just placing a few drops in her palm and spreading all over her body from toes to neck. This is also great inhaled to bring the thoughts back to peace.
