What do birch charcoal and juniper berries have in common? They are great weapons in human everlasting battle against harmful bacteria and viruses!

Juniper tree

Junipers vary in size and shape from tall trees, 20‑40 m (66‑131 ft) tall, to columnar or low spreading shrubs with long trailing branches. They are evergreen with needle-like and scale-like leaves. The female seed cones are very distinctive, with fleshy, fruit‑like coalescing scales which fuse together to form a "berry"‑like structure.

According to numerous studies, juniper essential oil, obtained from juniper berries, possesses profound bactericidal activities against Gram‑positive and Gram‑negative bacterial species, and it's no wonder! A mature juniper shrub is able to clean space around itself with a radius of 5 meters and more from bacteria and viruses.

Birch charcoal is usually produced by slow heating of wood in the absence of oxygen. Activated charcoal is a form of carbon processed to have small, low‑volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Because of such properties, it is used to treat poisonings following oral ingestion since it is capable of adsorbing toxins produced by bacteria.
