Juniper berries health benefits:

+ They help clear congestion and are often included in cold remedies to improve breathing

+ They improve digestion

+ They can be used as an astringent because of their anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. These can be very beneficial in cleansing and toning the skin in cases of acne and other skin inflammations such as eczema

+ Juniper oil has a strengthening, tonic effect on the nerves. Its sedative action helps those who find sleeping difficult because of worries and tensions
