The Healing Properties of Juniper Berry

What is Juniper Berry used for?

Everyone knows that berries are amazing super-foods that are great for your health, your skin, and your hair. Among these are the juniper berries which are round bluish-black fruits that resemble blueberries. Native to North America and Europe, juniper berries have been popular for thousands of years for their beneficial properties. 

The healing properties of Juniper Berry

Juniper berries have antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties help in the fight against acne and breakouts. They also help balance the sebum production in the skin by reducing excess oil production. This reduces the clogging and blocking of pores which can cause acne and breakouts. They also get rid of bacteria that can cause inflammations and infections. 

Juniper berries promote a more even skin tone by soothing and calming the skin of redness and the impact of infections. They also have astringent properties which work to deeply cleanse pores of oil, dirt, bacteria, and other compounds. These also ensure that skin cells and pores are tightened and strengthened which can improve the overall appearance of your face and restore its youthfulness.   

Juniper berries are chockfull of flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants which give them ability to powerfully combat the harmful effects of free radicals that cause skin damage. They work to reduce signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and age-spots and help to restore skin to a more youthful appearance. They also protect skin from further damage by environmental stressors and UV radiation making skin more resilient.  

Another amazing benefit of juniper berries is their ability to combat the pesky condition that affects so many women – cellulite. They work by boosting circulation in the sebaceous layer of the skin and helping dissolve fat which can wonderfully improve the appearance of cellulite. 

The benefits of juniper berries translate into improving the condition and health of your scalp and hair as well. They help fight off dandruff by calming an inflamed scalp and ridding the scalp of the bacteria or fungus that is causes dandruff. Their astringent properties also help to deeply cleanse the scalp and balance oil production to ensure that hair follicles are not clogged and hence promote stronger hair.
