Active Botanicals 101 : Ingredient Meanings

Juna’s 40+ active botanical oils are highly concentrated extractions from plants in their living (active*) state and used for their potent therapeutic capabilities to solve for the stress, anxiety, and sleep issues women are facing daily.

Our best-selling product, Nightcap, is 5-star rated and 91% of customers report deeper sleep and lowered stress levels. If Sleep isn’t your issue, our Ease collection has been amazing for endo, pms, and anxiety relief where our Balance drops are perfect for boosting your mood and and lowering stress levels. 

These botanical essential oils contain powerful compounds like mood shifting terpenes, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino and omega fatty acids that support elevated mood, relaxation, increased focus, and inner calm.  

How do they work? The science shows botanicals support regulation of the endocrine system where our stress hormone (cortisol), our sleep hormone (melatonin) and our sex hormones ( estrogen and progesterone) reside allowing the body to transition into a more optimized state.

All of Juna’s products are 100% proprietary and formulated to solve targeted imbalances in the body like stress, sleep and tension. They are designed with an intentional combination of  botanicals that work synergistically with one another to maximize and enhance the alchemical benefits.

Each formula (topical and ingestible)  contains plant-powered botanical actives to create balance within our internal systems (endocannabinoid, endocrine, immune and nervous system). Plants communicate with the body in an intelligent way - the body takes what it needs so you can show up as the best version of yourself. 

Below showcases the active botanicals in each collection and their therapeutic compounds.
