The juniper plant derives its name from the Latin “juniores,” reflective of the younger berries. These berries have been discovered in many prehistoric locations — recently around the lakes in Switzerland. Juniper was one of the earliest plants to be used by man. In ancient Tibet and Egypt, juniper berries were considered precious as ingredients used in the incense prepared for religious ceremonies, and their oil was used as a medicine.

In Europe, during the Middle Ages, juniper oil was used as medicine during the time of cholera epidemics and plagues.
