Mountain Juniper Berry Essential Oil or Rocky Mountain Juniper Berry are common names for this special variety of Juniper. We source this oil directly from a small family distiller in the Arizona desert.
In fact, when we place our order, the distiller obtains a permit from the national park to pick the berries, and we receive the oil approximately two months after the oil is distilled and has had time to cure. The Juniper trees grow wild at 7,000ft elevation in the Arizona Desert.
Mountain Juniper Berry Essential Oil is different not only in aroma, but it's known as the sabinene type because it is highest in sabinenes, which have been shown to benefit liver function and digestion, relieve arthritis, and can soothe skin conditions. Our founder, Hope Johnson loves to use this Juniper Berry oil in the shower, by just placing a few drops in her palm and spreading all over her body from toes to neck. This is also great inhaled to bring the thoughts back to peace.
