As a naturally protective herb, every part of Juniper Berries holds a vital role for every witch who desires to ensure protection in their life. In spellwork, branches and dried berries can be ground into a powder and spread across your front door. Carry a sprig of Juniper to guard you against accidents and wild animals. To use it as a protective charm, simply wear it or put it inside your pocket or display inside your car to protect yourself against evil and people who mean you harm.
Juniper Berries are excellent agents for purging negative forces from people or places. Warding off baneful spirits would mean planting a Juniper bush near your front door, this would keep evil witches away as they would have to count the needles upon each leaf before they can even take further steps towards your space. To make use of its aroma, you can inhale its essential oils while envisioning its positive energy to eliminate the dangerous and negative ones.
Juniper Berries makes a marvelous cleansing buddy since ancient times. For a witch, purification with Juniper would need her to burn a bunch of leaves as a smoke cleansing bundle. Making besoms or magical brooms and placing it beside your altar adds a purifying effect to your home as a magical tool.
To attract positive healing energy, make incense from dried Juniper, and let its smoke invade your space. Putting small bunches of sprigs and berries inside a pouch can also guarantee a long-term spiritual and emotional healing when hung outside your house. Juniper are also fantastic herbs best for deeper meditations and ritual works that highlight healing for you and the people around you.
