      Juniperis communis. Juniper. *N.O. Gymnospermae of the Coniferae. Tincture of fresh ripe berries.


Dropsy. Dysmenorrhoea. Haemorrhages.


*Juniper has not been proved, but sufficient is known of its action to warrant its inclusion, and to show the analogy between its action and that of *J. Sabina. Gin owes its distinctive properties to the oil of Juniper berries, and that is why this spirit is in such popular repute as a remedy for dysmenorrhoea. It has a very powerful action on the kidneys, and has cured cases of renal dropsy. Hale also commends it in certain coughs with scanty, loaded urine. He says German doctors use *Juniper much in gastric affections, abdominal flatulence and colic.


*Compare: Junip. virg., Sabina, Terebe.
