While not often seen on the label of fine skin care products, I have to say I absolutely love the natural, pleasant woody and pine scent that comes from natural Juniper Berry, so much so that I include Juniper Berry extract, which I make myself, in my organic handcrafted skin care creation Shea Body Butter. But that’s not the only reason I include Juniper Berry in ToniOrganics Shea Body Butter. Juniper Berry has so many good power packed qualities that promote healthy skin, it would be naïve to not place it at the top of the list when formulating fine skin care products.
Native to just about anywhere in the northern hemisphere, the Juniper Berry shrub itself which the bluish-greenish colored berries grow on looks and smells like an evergreen. For those of you who have never had the experience of smelling the beautiful aroma of the Juniper Berry, think of the natural pine aroma of a fresh evergreen tree and that is what Juniper Berries smell like.
While Juniper Berry oil has multiple medicinal uses, the extract made from the berry is an excellent skin toner when used in a body cream and applied to the skin routinely. I also include Juniper Berry crushed particles in my pure vegetable glycerin handcrafted soap which make for a superb skin exfoliator. Another wonderful benefit of this natural ingredient in my skin care creation Shea Body Butter, is that along with the pure Lemongrass Oil, Juniper Berry also has great non-toxic insecticide properties to fight off summer time mosquitoes and other unwanted insects, making it an excellent natural insect repellent. Not only that, but Juniper Berries have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties, along with powerful antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental abuses and free radicals. The anti-inflammatory properties in the Juniper Berry make it a particular useful ingredient in skin creams for psoriasis and dermatitis sufferers as well as rashes and other skin eruptions.
Juniper Berry Oil is contraindicated for pregnant women and people with kidney problems.
Another gift from our Creator, all of these wonderful natural properties in the Juniper Berry make for a superb skin care creation that your skin will thank you for!
