Do you ever feel like you have too much stress and want to detox, but don’t know how? dōTERRA’s Juniper Berry essential oil has a woody, spicy, yet fresh aroma that creates a calming and grounding effect. You can add one to two drops to water or citrus drinks as part of a natural cleansing regimen. If I’m ever feeling like I need to support my urinary tract, bladder or kidneys,  Juniper Berry is my go to oil. A few drops rubbed on my lower abdomen does the trick. I repeat a couple times a day until I feel I’ve gotten the relief I wanted.

This unique oil is also great when diffused with citrus oils to lessen stress. It is also a natural skin toner and can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, promoting a clear and healthy complexion.
