Medieval folklore suggested using juniper berries for protection against witches. These days it’s associated with gin!
Freshskin Beauty’s organic juniper berry oil is steam distilled from dried, ground berries grown high up in the Himalaya region of India. Its complex scent is fresh, richly balsamic and woody-sweet but with just a hint of pine needles.
Juniper berry oil is a good match for clary sage, sandalwood, bergamot and geranium. Or try with marjoram, rosemary, chamomile or eucalyptus.
