 Juniper has been our closest magical plant ally since Neolithic times. it was mentioned in the ancient Egyptian papyri; its fragrant wood, needles and berries were used as incense and medicine. It is believed to have the power to ward off evil and that demons or devils could not withstand its power, not even the demons of disease. Cleansing a space with Juniper will kill off germs and purify the air in a sick room. When the Black Death ravaged Europe, Juniper was one of the most promising and effective protectors however, it was also considered a protector of the threshold between this world and the next. Like Yew, it was thought to keep safe the souls of the dead until they were ready to reincarnate. This is why they were often planted on graves. In Egypt they also played a role in the mysteries of the dead. Juniper berries were found in the sarcophagi and also in the hand of one of the pharaohs. Juniper was held in high respect and as such the public would tip their hats in passing. All sorts of magical powers were ascribed to it: It was said to retrieve lost objects, protect against venomous beasts and guard against spells of faintness and weakness, to name but a few. Juniper repels biting bugs and its stimulating properties can 'preserve the spirit' and prevent dizziness and weakness.
