They are not ripe until the autumn of the following year. Dried, these famous berries flavour the best sauerkraut. The light yellow essential oil has a fruity, terpenic aroma.

Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

As an indication, some examples of use 

Application by massage or compress

It is advisable to mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, rose hip, argan, olive, etc.) to use it as a massage oil.

For a healthy urinary tract, mix 2 to 4 drops of juniper essential oil in a little vegetable oil and massage the lower abdomen. This essential oil can also be added to a neutral shampoo (4 to 6 drops) to clean up greasy hair or to a day cream (1 drop) for acne-prone skin.

For cellulite, pour 4 drops of Juniper essential oil into 1 teaspoon of grape seed vegetable oil and massage firmly into the affected areas (from the bottom up). 

In case of a sprain, to soothe the pain, massage very gently by applying an oil that you will prepare by mixing 100ml of massage oil + 50 drops of essential oil of Wintergreen + 20 drops of essential oil of Peppermint + 10 drops of essential oil of Juniper.

Finally, against aches and pains, in order to relax your muscles, rub them with the following mixture: 50 ml of vegetable oil + 50 ml of camphorated alcohol + 30 drops of juniper essential oil + 20 drops of marjoram essential oil.


Use by diffusion

To help clear obstructed airways but also to purify the air, diffuse for 15 to 30 minutes. Preferably mix this oil with eucalyptus radiata to avoid using it pure (20% juniper).


Inhalation use


Used as an inhalation, it will relieve obstructed airways. 2 to 4 drops of essential oil in a bowl of hot water.


Oral use

Juniper essential oil will promote the natural drainage of the body, dilute 1 to 2 drops in a teaspoon of honey or vegetable oil, 1 to 3 times a day (maximum daily dose: 6 drops, i.e. 0.24 ml).


Use in the bath

As essential oils are not soluble in water, they must be mixed with an emulsifier before being poured into the bath. For example, they can be mixed with a liquid soap, a neutral shampoo (1 tablespoon) or our Solubol® dispersant. As a general rule, it is recommended not to exceed 20 drops per bath and not to stay in the bath for more than 20 minutes. Juniper essential oil in the bath will help to keep the joints and muscles supple. Put 10 drops diluted in milk or other emulsifier.

10 to 20 drops diluted in the same way will allow you to fight against cellulite.

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
