Juniper was used by the ancient Egyptians as part of the embalming process and for various medicinal remedies.
It was also used in ancient times as an incense to drive away evil spirits and to deter disease; it was burned to ward off the plague. In French hospitals it was burnt with rosemary to purify the air. The oil was also used topically for the treatment of fever and smallpox.

Parts Used

The juniper bush is very widely distributed in the northern hemisphere, being found from North America to south west Asia, and from Siberia to the Mediterranean. It grows from southern coastal sites to more northerly moorland and mountainous regions.
