What is Juniper? ~ Roots in Wellness ~

We get asked this question a lot! Why did you name your spa Juniper? What is Juniper? Well….to answer your question:

Junipers are a type of shrub or tree from the cypress family & there are about 67 different species of it throughout the world. These trees have long needle-like leaves, clusters of small blue-berries and deep contorted roots. Juniper essential oil (distilled from the berries) have a long history of traditional uses & healing benefits:

juniper branch

The ancient Greeks burned juniper branches to combat epidemics. The English burned it as well, and hoped its magical powers would repel evil spirits, negative forces and illnesses. Ancient Egyptians used the berries in cosmetics and perfumes. Europeans regarded juniper oil as a miracle cure for typhoid, cholera, dysentery, and tapeworms. Tibetans still use juniper as a purification incense, while Native Americans burn it in their cleansing ceremonies. Holistic medicine also embraces juniper, and considers it a highly versatile and therapeutic oil.

Juniper essential oil stimulates blood circulation & helps to ease general muscular aches and pains. Juniper can help with cases of stress, anxiety and general burn-out. Its overall effect on the emotional system is one of strengthening and cleansing, helping to dispel negative emotions

We decided to name our spa Juniper because of it’s long, rich history of healing – both mentally & physically. Juniper is like a breath of fresh air that revitalizes your entire system.
