Latin Name: Juniperus communis
Plant Origin: Hungary
Botanical family: Cupressaceae
Plant Part: Berries, Organic
Processed: Steam distilled
Chemical family: Monoterpenes
Aroma: resinous, woody, with a slight turpentine note.
CHEMISTRY & SAFETY
CHEMISTRY: Overall, the main chemical family in Juniper Berry is Monoterpenes, meaning the essential oil consists of smaller molecules which will absorb faster into the skin. It also means that it is a less stable oil with a shorter shelf life. Store Juniper Berry oil in a cool dark place and in a container with little air. The most prominent monoterpene in Juniper Berry is alpha-pinene, a molecule responsible for actions such as the following: anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antispasmodic, antiviral, and the prevention of bone loss. Alpha-pinene is followed by Myrcene (a monoterpene with analgesic properties). Terpinen-4-ol and alpha terpineol are also part of Juniper Berry’s chemistry and contribute to the slight terpentine note.
SAFETY: FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid use near eyes or mucous membranes. Always dilute before applying to the skin and use within the “Best By” date. There are no safety issues that have been found with the species Juniperus communis, but Juniperus sabina should be avoided during pregnancy.
