Santa Bianca




Juniperus communis

The essential oil of juniper is the symbol of purity and eternity. Juniper wood is durable and resistant to woodworms. Medea used a juniper-based potion to put the dragon to sleep, thus helping Jason obtain the Golden Fleece.
It gives us the courage we need, makes us overcome shyness, and helps dealing with guilt feelings.
Depending on the supply, our juniper comes both from Bosnia and the hills around Gubbio (Umbria region), but the one from the Apennines is considered the best.
Juniper essential oil is distilled from ripe berries or small branches, so that we have the chance to obtain two different oils.
It has a very persistent sweet, fresh, and balsam aroma.
