Description

100% Pure Juniper Berry Powder – dried powdered fruit of Juniper Communis.

Juniper berries have been used as a culinary ingredient for centuries? In Scandinavia they were used to make a fragrant preserve that was eaten on bread. In parts of Britain and France, juniper berries were dried and used as a pepper substitute, in fact at one point juniper berries were even used to adulterate pepper berries by unscrupulous spice merchants, the berries have also been used to flavour beer and of course they are a standard ingredient in the making of gin which was once used as a medicine.

In herbal medicine, juniper has been used as a carminative and as a steam inhalant in the management of bronchitis. In traditional Swedish medicine, Juniperus communis has been used to treat wounds and inflammatory diseases. It also is used to control arthritis.

It is also the ‘herb of choice’ in the British Isles to use for cleansing and protection having been used for centuries in ‘Saining’ and ‘Warding’ rituals.

    Just a short note to say thank you for the quality of the herbs I’ve e purchased from you. The quality has been superb and certainly helped my practice, I have been using Juniper to use for cleansing and found it much improved. In the past i have used white sage, however its not native to the land. So a big thank you for the quality if the juniper you provide.
