JuniperOrganic Juniper Berry Essential Oil
This plant is associated with the ancient Canaanite goddess Asherah (also worshipped by the Hebrews, much to the dismay of the Prophets). In another part of the world, during the Celtic festival Samhain, juniper was burned for its aromatic smoke, which was said to aid in clairvoyance and contact with the dead (the berries are full of essential oil and make a good addition to incense). Juniper is typically connected to Jupiter (the berries actually contain some tin, the planetary metal), and this magick herb is often used in purification, a Jovian task. Usually the type of cleansing involved is the blessing and protection of a home or of one's family and animals. But this plant's connection to clairvoyance shows that it has more than a bit of Moon to it. I consider it to be specifically the Dark of the Moon, partly because of the dark color of the berries and partly because its use in Samhain, which is just a Dark of the Moon time of year, as far as I'm concerned. It's a real fall/winter night scent. This essential oils is steam distilled from organically grown Juniperus communis in Albania. Top
