Juniper essential oil 10ml

Juniper essential oil is made of crushed juniper (Juniperus communis, Cupressaceae) berries, twigs and crushed wood, using the steam distillation method. Juniper essential oil is slightly more intensive than average, characterised by a distinct rich scent of softwood.

Methods and amounts of use:

Aromatic bath: essential oils are insoluble in water, thus dissolve 10-30 drops of essential oil mix in a glass of milk, kephir, yoghurt, cream, a tablespoon of plant oil or some honey and then pour the mixture into your bath.

Cream or lotion: put 10-15 drops of the essential oil mix into 1 spoon of unfragranced cream or lotion.

Hand cream or lotion: one-time use: 3 drops of the essential oil in 1 teaspoon of fatty oil.

After-shave lotion: 40 drops of essential oil mix into 120 ml of apple vinegar or vodka and 80 ml of distilled water.

Massage: 10-15 drops of essential oil mix into 2 tablespoons of plant oil.

Sauna: 15 drops of essential oil mix into 10 l of hot water for soaking besoms.

Aromatic lamp: 4-5 drops for 5 sq. m. area. For daily use (don’t forget to add warm water).

Facial steam bath: 2-3 drops into 1 l hot water.
