As a potent diuretic with antifungal and specific cleansing effects on the body, juniper berries provide a more intensely therapeutic natural medicine than some of our other home remedies.
Natural Juniper Home Remedies: First and foremost, juniper is considered a purifying remedy. It is a diuretic that stimulates elimination of wastes from the body and is considered a detoxifying agent even beyond that basic function. This is particularly true for arthritis and gout, where juniper can be taken internally to reduce uric acid build-up.
However, it is in that diuretic role that is most often used as a therapeutic agent for the kidneys. Additionally, juniper oil can be rubbed into the chest for congestion or a cough. It can also be used as a massage oil to reduce the pain of gout or arthritis. In both cases, be sure to mix with a gentle carrier oil to prevent irritation.
