    JUNIPER DESCRIPTION

    Juniper is called "geniver" in Dutch, from which came gin; however, it is good for more than making martinis. The berries, which are not berries at all, but a portion of the cone, were used by the Zuni Indians to help with childbirth. British herbalists used Juniper to treat congestive heart failure and stimulate menstruation, and by the 19th century, American herbalists used it to treat congestive heart failure, gonorrhea, and urinary tract infections. It is believed that Juniper has diuretic properties which help remove accumulated fluid in congestive heart failure and wash out the offending bacteria in urinary tract infections; however, there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness.

    juniper plant


    The evergreen Juniper may grow as a shrub that sprawls on the ground or stand erect as a bush that grows to 12 feet tall. It bears needles, yellow flowers and blue berries that turn black upon maturity. These ripened berries are the source of the aromatic juniper essential oil. Its spicy, pine-like scent has earthy undertones, and it is most notably associated with the characteristic smell of gin, to which Juniper berries are added for flavoring.
