I am officially adding Juniper Berry to my wish list to buy soon. I love learning everything I can about the oils so I can use them in ways I wouldnt have thought of. very helpful informaion.
I absolutely love juniper–it’s one of my favorites for everything from diffusing to linen sprays. It makes everything smell so fresh. It’s also a great oil to use for relaxation!
I use juniper in my smudging spray. I am definitely going to try it for post workout muscle soreness.
Curious what your smudging recipe is.
Does anyone have a good mixture for joint pain using the juniper?
I wish Canada had a PT warehouse so we could take advantage of these discounts on spotlight oils, but having to order over 50.00 worth is a little hard on the wallet.
I agree Gwen H. as it is hard on the wallet. I have ordered a couple times and ordered the $50 by adding OOTM and many of my wish list items.
I’ve never used this before, interested in how it works and how to use it.
I had no idea that Juniper Berry had so many uses! This is one of the few oils that I don’t own, so I went ahead and ordered it. I was surprised that it also provides a calming effect and really look forward to trying it! Has anyone tried Juniper Berry for calming? How did it work? Anything else to add with it to the diffuser to enhance these effects ie. Lavender?
I use juniper for calming on a regular basis and it works wonderfully!!! My favorites to diffuse it with are bergamot and/or cedarwood.
Sounds like a great one to add to my list!
I have a full bottle of this, but couldn’t resist the Spotlight code to get another. It’s one of my all time favorite oils.
This has been in my wishlist after seeing it in so many synergies I have and want to use it on its own.
This helps with anxiety and pain and helps purify the air?….yes, please! Adding it to my wish list. Thanks for doing these spotlights to help us learn about oils we may not have otherwise looked into.
Just purchased Juniper Berry! My parents had a juniper bush right by where we waited for the bus and we would use the berries as bombs to pass the time. Hopefully, this oil will be good for all the things above. But mostly for bring back good memories!
Juniper berry has been on my list for weeks now but I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Your spotlight helped convince me and I’m so glad! Your blog has been so helpful to our family as we continue our EO journey.
We are so happy to hear that, Jennifer!
I’m really curious about this one! I wonder if it smells anything like gin?
This is definitely going on my list to buy. It sounds wonderful.
Hoping to get back into a meditation practice. Will have to try diffusing this!
I read that this can help prevent night terrors in little ones. Any one have any experience with that??
I enjoy these “spotlights” – going to get this one and give it a try.
We hope you love it, Angela!
Would this be a good choice to use on a child with growing pains? I know you have Grow Ease but I’m curious of this could be an alternative. Juniper Berry is sounding so awesome!
I have added it to my list!! Can’t wait to try it for nervous anxiety!
I love Juniper! My favorite is to blend it with citrus.
This is my “go to” oil to help with pain/swelling from varicose veins and calf circulation issues. It REALLY makes a huge difference. I dilute it in jojoba oil and also add helichrysum EO. I love Plant Therapy oils!
Can’t wait to try this one. Something for the whole family.
Just ordered it, can’t wait to try as a room purifier!
Can’t wait to try this oil. Sounds intriguing
I love juniper berry for calming since I’m not big on lavender!
Pt is there anywhere that you list the note value
of your oils abd is there any significance to thte color labels?
One of my favorites at bedtime with Chamomile, I will try blending with some of the other suggested oils!
I did not realize this was another oil that was good for congestion. I will diffuse this on my way to work tomorrow.
I already have it and I see my husband ordered it again lol
I was just trying to decide if I should buy this one!
Sounds like an oil we could all enjoy this time of the year! Putting it on my wishlist for now…
Adding it to my wishlist! It sounds great for leg cramps.
Great in diffuser. Looking forward to seeing how it does as a rub
I love reading about the spotlight oils. I already have juniper and its awesome to find new ways to use this oil. I am definitely going to diffuse this to clear the air for the new year and to use on sore muscles.
You read my mind, PT! Thank you!
I have always wondered about this oil! It has many uses Our household would benefit from like tension relief and congestion (happens a lot with constant season change in Fl).
Perfect timing…it’s in my wish list!
I love the scent of Juniper Berry. I have used it mixed with Black Pepper in a carrier oil for ankle tendonitis. Great in my diffuser, too
Just ordered! Excited to give it a try!
Excited for this spotlight oil. It’s one on my wish list.
