Juniper Berries (Juniperus communis)
What do the landscapers at your apartment complex and that bottle of gin behind the bar have in common? They both smell like juniper berries, of course! It may come as a surprise that many of the common ornamental hedges that look so trim and neat are actually a juniper species, and you may be one of those people who walks past and lets your nose look for the characteristic powder blue berries.
Do we sound like we’re beating around the berry bush? Wonder why we’re talking plant-personalities instead of what’s good for your aching back? We have to speak in riddles to comply with FDA guidelines. So open another browser – or even a BOOK! – to research physiological usage. We’ll be right here waiting with whatever herbal products you need!
