Juniper Berry or Juniperberry?

Juniper Berry essential oil is distilled soley from the berries of the juniper plant, while Juniperberry is distilled from the berries and branches/twigs of the plant.

Similarities: Both Junipers have a clear sharp, fresh, woody aroma. They can be used interchangeably since they are both stimulating, good for lymphatic and immune support and effective air disinfectants.


Differences: Juniper Berry is slightly drier and sharper. Juniperberry has a sweeter and softer aroma.


Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?
    I will answer him and care for him.
I am like a flourishing juniper;
    your fruitfulness comes from me.” Hosea 14:8


There are different varieties in the Juniper family, this oil comes from the lower growing shrubs, while some varieties grow as tall trees like the one that Elijah would've taken refuge from while he was retreat from the exhausting battle with Jezebel!


Juniper is referred to often is scripture and is always a BLESSING. For the Lord to compare Himself to a flourishing juniper in the Hosea scripture above is a big, huge deal in my book! Fruitfulness comes from the Lord, the Holy Spirit, but there is something about Juniper that bears good physical fruit in us or Father wouldn't have used it as a symbol for the way He provides spiritual fruitfulness!

There is even legend that Mary and Joseph used juniper to hide Jesus from Herod during their escape, so Elijah hid under Juniper, Jesus was hidden under Juniper, and fruitfulness comes from Juniper? Enough said! This is a new staple for me. I hope you love it toooo!
