  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?
