What is juniper wood?
Juniper wood has the special feature of being pleasantly fragrant, with a sweet, peppery fragrance. The berries (young growing shoots) are used as a condiment in the finest cuisine.
The juniper also has medicinal virtues. According to one legend, eating a juniper berry a day will keep illness away.
Juniper wood is also a powerful antiseptic used in fumigation: it was burned in homes in former times to keep away major diseases.
Nowadays, it is more commonly used in infusions to aid digestion.
The wood is also known as ‘cade’ and comes from the southern Massif Central.
