Juniper oil was burned as incense and to keep evil spirits away. In addition, considered a purifying environmental essence, due to the belief that its aroma brought peace and kept bad energies away. Burning the branches was found to ward off contagious diseases. In World War II, the French returned to burning juniper in hospitals as an antiseptic when their supply of drugs ran low
