The earliest recorded medicinal use of Juniper occurs in an Egyptian papyrus dating back to 1500 BC, in a recipe to cure tapeworm infestations. It was also found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. As the plant itself didn't grow in Egypt, it is believed to have been imported there from Greece. The Greeks believed that Juniper increased physical stamina in athletes, so they used it in many of their Olympic events. The Scottish have used Juniper incense to ward off the evil eye and the Tibetans have used it to remove demons. The Romans, Arabians, Native Americans, Celts and Germanic people also used Juniper. In mediaeval times it was classed as a miracle cure for all ailments. The highly aromatic smoke of Juniper was used for smudging, especially purification rites. The smoke was said to aid clairvoyance.
