MAGICAL USES
Used throughout Europe as a protective herb, Juniper also guards against theft. It is probably one of the earliest incenses used by European Witches. Juniper hung at the door protects against evil forces and persons, and it is burned in exorcism rites. A sprig of the plant protects its wearer from accidents and attacks by wild animals. It also guards against ghosts and sickness.
Juniper is added to love mixtures, and the berries are carried to increase male potency.
When carried or burned, Juniper helps the psychic powers and breaks hexes and curses, and drives off snakes.
