Juniper comes in a clearly marked 3″ x 4″ resealable bag and weighs 1 ounce.
It is considered to be a protective herb, and specifically guards against theft. Wearing a sprig of Juniper is believed to protect the wearer from accidents and wild animal attacks. Hung at your door, it’s said to protect you and your home from evil forces, evil people, ghosts and sickness.
Juniper has been used as incense for a very long time, and used in exorcisms, to help psychic powers, to break hexes and curses and to attract good, healthy energies.
When added to love mixtures, or amulets, it is believed to increase male potency. Dried Juniper berries can be strung together like beads for a simple amulet or charm. The berries of this herb, if added to sachets, will protect the wearer from accidents and theft, as well as from attacks from wild animals and snakes. If Juniper is grown by your doorstep, or hung at your front door it is said that the home will be protected against evil forces and persons.
From the point of view of witches and occultists, the juniper’s most common use is in the making of incense, for which both the dried berries and needles and the essential oil are used. The berries, having a relatively high oil content, tend to burn with a good deal of smoke and any incense containing them is likely to produce a good fog if that is what appeals to you.
Purification – as an incense or “smudge” in most rituals of purification, including the blessing of houses and other buildings and for dedicating new working areas and temples; for animals (eg welcoming and dedicating new familiars); and for purifying people, for example baby-blessing ceremonies, initiations etc. A small bunch of twigs or a few berries in a pouch can also be hung in the rafters of a building or over the lintel of the doorway as a longer-term protection.
