RED JUNIPER BERRY OIL
PRODUCT CODE : WCR-RJO
Red Juniper (Juniperus oxycedrus) vernacularly called Cade, cade juniper, prickly juniper, prickly cedar, or sharp cedar, is a small coniferous tree or shrub native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. It is recognizable by its needle-like leaves and red bark, which peels off in stripes. The tree’s wood is durable and hard and valued for making furniture and other woodwork. Oils are extracted from its leaves and branches and used for different medicinal therapies and as a fragrance component in soaps and perfumes. The fresh berries are collected from the wild plants and steam distilled in our factory in Turkey. The odor of our oil is very different from Cade oil which has a smoky, phenolic, bonfire odor and is obtained from the destructive distillation of the leaves and twigs of the Juniperus oxycedrus.
