Juniper (Juniperus), a member of the Cupressaceae family, counts some sixty or so species of tree or bush, all native to the northern hemisphere. Its wood varies in color from pink to reddish-brown. This plant was a favorite of the Greeks and Romans who used cade oil, obtained by heating juniper wood, for washing deceased people. In addition to its decorative and functional qualities, juniper is also used in perfumes for its woody aroma. Note that this tree was already used as an ingredient in creams and perfumes in Ancient Egypt!
There is a legend that eating a single juniper berry every day will ward off illness.
