Product Abstract: A juniper berry is the female seed
cone produced by the various species of junipers. It is not a true
berry but a cone with unusually fleshy and merged scales, which give it a
berry-like appearance. The berries are green when young, and mature to a
purple-black color over about 18 months. The berries are plucked from
the branches of the plant once a year, and dried and ground before
distillation. They have traditionally been used as an aromatic aid to
meditation, and had remedial applications.
