Juniper can be ingested, and it soothes the digestive tract when consumed in tea or food. Simultaneously irradicating infection and fostering a healthy microbiome, this herb boosts Immunity. Conditions like IBS, SIBO, Diarrhea, Flatulence, Constipation, Heartburn, and bloating are relieved with continued Juniper exposure. It has a pleasant taste, and is commonly added to beverages around the world.

The cosmetics industry takes advantage of this herb’s appealing aroma and palatability. Juniper appears in unlikely places, improving the smells of makeup/beauty/hygiene products.
