What is Juniper?
Juniper, part of the Cypress family, is a shrub native to areas of cooler climates in the northern hemisphere, often found growing wild throughout North America, Asia, and Europe. The shrub grows horizontally across the ground, sprouting small dark purple berries. Their name comes from the Latin word “junio” meaning young, most likely relating to this evergreen shrub’s ability to live for up to two hundred years!
Juniper has been used in culinary practices dating back to ancient Rome, where it was used as a substitute for Indian pepper. It is popular as one of the main aromatic ingredients in gin. Its use in wellness practices dates back to Greek and Arabian physicians and has been used by Native Americans in their traditional wellness practices as well.
