History and Background

The name juniper came from the French word ‘genievre’ meaning gin. Juniper berries were said to be used as the main flavor for gin and alcoholic wines since the Middle Ages.

Juniper Berry was highly prized as a medicine and as an ingredient used for religious incense during ancient times in Egypt and Tibet. A remedy to treat tapeworms was discovered in Egypt on a papyrus which dated back to 1550 BC.

In Europe and Asia, the needles and berries were used to make tonics for kidney and stomach ailments, and native Americans from the Pacific Northwest used tonics made from the branches to treat colds, flu, arthritis, muscle aches, and kidney problems. In fact, Juniper Berry remains in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia to this day.

In Chinese Medicine, Juniper Berry is used as a tonic for stimulating yang energy, which benefits chronic tiredness, cold hands and feet, lower backache and fluid. It is associated with spiritual purification.

Also used for people who worry too much and hold onto unpleasant memories, who fell unsupported and feel no one understands them. Associated astrologically with Mars as a symbol of fire and confidence.
