Juniper is an evergreen tree that grows wild throughout parts of Europe, Asia, and North America. Though there are many varieties of juniper, the most common in North America is the Juniperus communis. This particular tree grows up to 10 feet tall and has needle-like leaves and seed cones. The medicinal parts of the juniper tree are known as berries but are actually the dark blue-black scales that come from the cones. Scales from the male juniper ripen in 18 months while scales from the female juniper ripen within 2 to 3 years.
Tea from juniper is prepared by one teaspoon finely chopped fruits and then pour a cup of boiling water , cover and leave for about ten minutes . You can drink one cup or two a day, or one shot on every two hours . The use should not be a long and continuous , because traces of turpentine in juniper can cause irritation and inflammation of the kidneys . Therefore, it is best to take tea every month , but only after one week .
