Juniper is an erect evergreen coniferous shrub or a small tree native to the northern hemisphere and is common in Canada, Scandinavia and Siberia. It is also known as Common juniper, fairy circle, hackmatack, gin berry, horse savin, gorst, aiten, dwarf juniper, genevier, mountain common juniper, old field common juniper, genévrier, ginepro, enebro, gemeiner, gin plant, wachholder, reckholder.

The dried and ripe berries but sometimes the needles and leaves have been used for medical purposes.

Traditionally it has been used to treat arthritis, gout and rheumatism and as an herbal remedy for urinary tract infections such as cystitis and urethritis as it has diuretic and antiseptic properties. Other traditional medical uses for juniper berries are the treatment of intestinal infections, colic and other stomach upsets.

Additionally it has been used as a medicinal herb for coughs, bronchitis and upper respiratory infections and as a treatment for wounds, muscle aches, lesions and abnormal skin growths, and snake bites. Juniper has antiseptic and astringent properties which explains why it has been used to treat acne and other skin blemishes. It has also been used in combination with other herbs to treat psoriasis affecting the scalp.

In the German Pharmacopoeia the juniper berry is listed as a treatment for dyspeptic complaints such as gas, heartburn, indigestion and flatulence.

Juniper should not be used by pregnant or nursing women. As it can be irritating to the kidneys it should not be used by people with kidney disease or infection and used with extreme caution in patients with diabetes or hypoglycemia since it may interfere with the action of glucose regulating medication. Generally, Juniper should not be taken for more than six weeks as a tisane and use of the tincture or oil should be monitored by a physician or medical professional.
