The oil of Juniper has been used as a ritual incense since the beginning of times by various civilizations such as Babylonian, Egyptians, Tibetans and America’s Indians.
It has a purifying and depurative effect for the physical and for the aural bodies. This perfume is particularly useful for cleaning up all the negative energies accumulated, especially if that has happened through the contact with other persons with whom one does not feel in harmony. I mean the contacts on public transports, in crowded places, with many unknown persons, with persons towards whom we feel enmity, or that we find unpleasant, or evil, or finally if we have had unavoidable contacts with persons whose energies, ways and style of life are in contrast with our own spiritual model.
Juniper can also be used to purify atmospheres and buildings from unwanted energies. This helps especially when shifting to a new house, or if something disagreeable has happened in your home. It is also advisable for therapeutic or meditation sittings in a building that has never been used for this purpose. Simply put the oil in a lamp or a diffuser and let the aroma pervade the atmosphere that you wish to purify.
Native Americans used to burn dried branches of a species of Juniper (Virginiana Juniperus), together with other types of grass in the purification ceremonies.
There is some confusion on the name of this particular Juniper, which is called Cedar in America. Sometimes people have a sense of “unclean” referring to their own life. The cause can be actions done in the past, which are now seen with reprobation.
It is possible to work with the oil of Juniper to help overcome these feelings, removing them from the etheric layers of the aura. This cleaning action is similar to the action of the floral remedy of Bach “Crab Apple”, and both can be used together Attention: not to use in the first months of pregnancy.
