Origins of Our Bhutan Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil

Bhutan HimalayanThis small-batch Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil is truly unique — only one of two juniper essential oils harvested and distilled in Bhutan, and the first offered by us here at Floracopeia.

With similar therapeutic properties to other junipers, its minty, peppery aroma is slightly different. And on top of its impressive resume of therapeutic properties, it is loaded with ecological, social, and economic benefits.


Eco Project

This unique, boutique oil comes from the same distiller that brought us our once-a-year Bhutan jatamansi. Our partnership has enabled this distiller to expand operations enough to process the additional botanical, bringing us this remarkable, artisanal essential oil.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Here at Floracopeia, we’re passionate about providing you with the best, highest quality botanicals — while ensuring sustainable and ethical harvesting, cultivation, and distillation of these products.

This small-scale operation is no different.

Carefully planned, executed, regulated, and managed, the integrity and quality of the botanicals is ensured, as well as longevity and sustainability for the ecosystems they are carefully harvested from.

Although the juniper is abundant in the mountains, and not endangered, it’s still protected through regulation and licensing by the Bhutanese government to ensure responsible sourcing.

SOCIAL & ECONOMIC

On top of the environmental stewardship exhibited by both the distiller and the Bhutanese government (who is aiming to be the world’s first 100% organic farming nation) the benefits of this new distillation span into social and economic realms as well.

The juniper is hand-harvested and transported immediately to the distillery so the leaves are fresh and potent when they are small batch distilled. Our distiller pays fair and equitable wages to the hand-harvesters and transporters of the juniper. This Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil brings new livelihoods and responsible economic possibilities to local communities.

How to Use Bhutan Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil

Juniper is best known for its respiratory supporting attributes.

But this powerful botanical does so much more. It supports major systems in the body for holistic health:

  • Circulatory
  • Nervous
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Respiratory
  • Energetic

Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil is therapeutically interchangeably with other junipers, but, as mentioned, has a softer, milder aroma, with more hints of pepper and mint.

It blends well with:

  • Citruses, like bergamot, lemon, orange, mandarin, and lime
  • Conifers, like cypress, cedar, pine
  • Herbs, like clary sage, vetiver, rosemary, and lavender

Essential oils difusingDIFFUSE

Diffuse Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil on its own, for a potent respiratory cleansing and atmospheric purification.

Hints of citrus, like mandarin or lemon for an uplifting, energetic blend.

For a relaxing evening blend, add vetiver or lavender, and place your diffuser by your bedside.

FLU-FIGHTING CLEANSER

Juniper’s antimicrobial properties make it a great surface cleaner to fight off microorganisms that can cause illness.

Add the following to a spray bottle to clean countertops and kitchen surfaces.

  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 3-5 drops of Castile Soap
  • 8 drops of Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil
  • 1 cup water
  • Shake before use

Use on surfaces to stop the spread of germs and microorganisms that can cause illnesses, like colds and flu.

MUSCLE TENSION RELIEF MASSAGE OIL

Do you hold your stress in your muscles or joints? This simple massage oil will improve circulation and reduce pain or stiffness throughout the body.

Simply add a few drops of Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil to your favorite carrier oil. (We love Jojoba Essential Oil or Argan Essential Oil). Be sure to dilute it to about 2%. Rub on sore joints or muscles for pain and stress relief.

CIRCULATION & CELLULITE BLEND

Juniper enhances circulation and fights edema. For a powerful massage blend, try the following:

Dilute the blend in ½ oz. carrier oil, like Jojoba Carrier Oil and massage locally for cellulite and improved circulation

COMFORTABLE JOINT BLEND

This more complex blend uses a mix of cooling eucalyptus and warming ginger for blood flow and pain relief. Plus, the complex blending of oils make it a lovely fragrance.

Dilute the blend in ½ oz. carrier oil, such as Champa Infused Almond Oil and use it on stiff, aching joints to soothe pain and enhance mobility

DIRECT PALM INHALATION

Perhaps the easiest way to use juniper, especially for clearing the nasal passages or mind, is to inhale it directly from your palms.

Add a few drops of Himalayan Juniper Essential Oil to your palms. Place your palms near your face and inhale from your nose deeply to experience sinus opening, lung cleansing, and decongesting.

A Sacred Tree Oil

incense burning difusingOften when we use essential oils, we look at how they’re used in their plant form to identify the treasures concentrated within their essential oils.

Himalayan Juniper’s is primarily used for incense. This sacred botanical is also used in rituals and ceremonies for fumigation and purification of the air — to cleanse, purify, and dispel negativity.

As an essential oil, Juniper dispels negative thoughts that cloud concentration and focus, — and purify the air and surfaces, removing illness-causing microorganisms.

This softer, sweeter juniper oil, made from the leaves of the abundant junipers, high in the Himalayas, is potent, multifaceted, and fragrant.

This oil is a valuable addition to home apothecaries, to support the nervous, respiratory, musculoskeletal, circulatory, and energetic systems.

Now you can use Himalayan Juniper as an aromatherapy tool for your holistic health and wellbeing, while supporting an Eco-Project that is protecting valuable ecosystems in the Himalayas and providing jobs with fair pay to those local community members.
