Healing Herb: Juniper

The juniper is an evergreen tree native to Europe, Asia, and the northern parts of North America. Its botanical name is Juniperus communis L. The first recorded mention of Juniper is in an Egyptian papyrus from 1500 B.C. The main part used is the berries, which are purple, blue, violet or blackish brown, and can be harvested in early autumn.

Historically Juniper has been used in many different ways. Its medicinal use has mainly been for the kidneys. By the 17th century, it was a popular diuretic. The English herbalist Nicholas Culpeper wrote about Juniper, "[it] provokes urine exceedingly . . . [it] is so powerful a remedy against dropsy, it cures the disease." American Indians used Juniper to help in child-birth. The Seminole Indians used it for many illnesses.

Re-known herbalist Dr. John Christopher states that Juniper is a great healer to the kidneys, urinary passages, and bladder. It is a counter-poison and strengthener of the brain, memory, and optic nerve. Juniper may have anti-inflammatory properties, which could be helpful in treating arthritis. In Germany, herbal remedies are more mainstream, and physicians prescribe juniper preparations for arthritis and gout.
