Juniper Hydrosol Benefits, Tips & How to Use

Juniper hydrosol is collected during steam distillation of juniper berries (Botanical name: Juniperus communis L.). The steam distillation process produces two extracts: juniper berry essential oil and juniper hydrosol. The aroma of juniper hydrosol is fresh, brisk, herbaceous and slightly sweet. Unless it's properly preserved, this hydrosol will quickly spoil so make sure to keep it refrigerated.

Here are some of the benefits:

1. Reduces Cellulite & Bloating Juniper berry is known as a powerful diuretic. It assists in drainage of excess fluids in the body. For cellulite and bloated body, take ½ tbsp. each of juniper hydrosol and cypress hydrosol daily.

2. Minimizes Oily Skin Juniper hydrosol is good for reducing excess oiliness on the skin. Find an oil-absorbing facial mask with juniper in the how to use section below.
