Oil of the Week - Juniper Berry
*** We have listened to your feedback and requests for a more readily available oil education series, so beginning January 2nd, our "Oil of the Week" education campaign will be launching. Each Monday through mid- March, culminating with the 2017 Emerald Coast Holistic Health Expo, we will be posting specific information regarding an individual oil to each of you. It is our sincere hope that this will bring front and center the natural options that are available for those every day concerns. Please also see below for additional web based education opportunities.
Juniper berry essential oil (Juniperus communis) is a steam-distilled oil from the berries and needles of the juniper plant. The best oils are sourced from Bulgaria, their indigenous region, and take a full THREE years to ripen to maturity. The aroma is somewhat sweet, almost balsamic. It's mostly frequently used for the urinary system, skin, digestive system, and nervous system. It can also be used to support cleansing and detoxifying.
Combine 1 drop each Juniper Berry, Lemongrass, and Rosemary and rub onto the soles of the feet or add to warm tea to support the urinary tract, kidney, and gastrointestinal function. Combine with the doTerra Cleanse & Restore Kit to cleanse toxins and bring homeostasis back to the body after over indulging during the holiday season.
▪ Supports healthy kidney and urinary function
▪ May benefit problematic skin areas
▪ Acts as a natural cleansing and detoxifying agent
▪ Helps relieve tension and stress
Juniper berry essential oil is a favorite for emotional support. It's said to have an encouraging and supportive affect on the emotional and spiritual aspects of a person, particularly helping a person navigate fears and resistance to the type of digging deep necessary for healing. It's even said to help a person overcome nightmares, especially those with deeper unconscious meaning, and help gain more restful sleep.
Children might find this oil beneficial when they are afraid of the dark, helping them to find the courage to face their fears and scare off the monsters under the bed. It can allow them to learn there is nothing to fear when they have the courage to be themselves out there in the world.
For adults, juniper berry essential oil helps us do the deep and dirty work of spiritual healing, especially from trauma or pain we're afraid to look at, or beliefs we don't want to examine because we fear they might be true (such as "I'm unlovable"). By facing our fears, we can begin to dismantle and become free of them.
▪ Add 1–2 drops to water or citrus drinks as part of a natural cleansing regimen.
▪ Apply 1 drop to problematic skin areas to promote a clear, healthy complexion.
▪ Diffuse with citrus oils to freshen and purify the air and to lessen stress.
▪ For better rest, place 1-2 drops of juniper berry essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and inhale for up to 30 seconds or more several times a day, or in times of stress and tension. Also consider diffusing in the work space or home throughout the day.
▪ To relieve childhood fears, in a small non-plastic (metal or glass) spritz bottle, mix 4 drops of juniper essential oil to every ounce of water and use as a room and pillow spray. You can also apply a drop to the bottom of the feet or back of the neck (avoid hands that might end up rubbing eyes).
Directions For Use:
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Stay tuned next week to see which essential oil will be next.......
