Bring the water to a simmer for several minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and strain the juniper berries.
Discard the berries and preserve the oil.
Put the strained juniper berry oil back in the double boiler and put it back on a low heat.
Stir in the beeswax and allow it to melt.

Dandelion Oil Recipe to Relieve Joint Pain

Dandelion flowers, freshly picked
Base oil, such as grapeseed oil, almond oil or olive oil

Fill a small mason jar with fresh dandelion flowers.
Pour the oil over the dandelion flowers and fill the jar almost to the top.
Cover with cheesecloth secured with a rubber band and set the jar on a warm sunny windowsill for 2 weeks, or until the flowers have lost their color and turn brown.
Strain the dandelion flowers out of the oil and transfer the oil to a new sterilized jar.
Store it in a cool dark place.
If you put it in the refrigerator, it should last indefinitely.
