Juniper Oil: Nature’s Summer Hemline Helper
Juniper berry oil has depurative, diuretic, and tonic properties that are both cleansing and invigorating to the lymphatic and circulatory systems. When massaged into the skin, the oil stimulates blood flow which, in turn, cleanses and flushes those near-skin fat stores that are responsible for cellulite. The tonic properties in Juniper can even help restore muscle tone and skin elasticity.
