- Drop some Juniper in your shower stall before taking a shower. It is refreshing and can help reduce mucous.
- For a detoxifying salt scrub add 15 drops juniper and 15 drops lemon to approximately 8 ounces of salt and 4 ounces of oil (almond is a nice weight). Adjust oil and salt as needed for a nice consistency. Use a small handful as a scrub and then rinse off the salt. Keep in a plastic container in the shower.
