Juniper Berry essential oil is extracted from juniper berries, which grow on the Juniperus Communis tree which originates from Bulgaria. The Juniperus Communis is an evergreen conifer with greyish brown bark, red-brown twigs, and green needle-like leaves. The tree can grow as tall as 10 metres and live for up to 200 years.
The Juniperus Communis tree produces yellow male flowers and green female flowers. Over time the female flowers evolve into aromatic, purple juniper berries. This is where juniper berry essential oil is taken from.
