Juniperus sabina is a popular ornamental shrub in gardens and parks, with numerous named cultivars. It is very variable in shape, reaching 1- 4 m in height with needle like leaves Female cones are berry-like some 5 - 7 mm in diameter and are blue-black with a whitish waxy bloom whilst their male counterparts are 2-4 mm long, shedding their pollen in early spring. Both the leaf tips and berries have a foetid, offensive odor with a bitter, hot, and acrid taste.

The homeopathic remedy is obtained from crushing the leaves in order to extract the essential oil which is the active element of the plant. The oil is a yellowish fluid, becoming colorless when rectified, has a penetrating odour of the fresh plant and a burning taste. All parts of the plant are poisonous due to several toxic compounds including ethereal oils.

Mentals & Generals
Constitutionally it is suited to women with chronic ailments who are lean, shrivelled, scrawny, hungry who never put on weight and are delicate and not robust. They require an open and cool atmosphere even in cold weather.

In the mental sphere there is much irritability, hysteria, and hypochondriasis. A peculiar feature is that music is intolerable. It produces weeping and numbness that goes through bone and marrow.

Generals include inflammatory and haemorrhagic symptoms bright red partly fluid and partly clotted principally of kidneys, bladder, uterus, rectum and anus.

The circulatory system is excited with violent pulsations all over the body. The patient is disturbed by heat, is worse in a warm room or from too much clothing, requires the windows open and prefers to be in the open air. There is associated great burning and throbbing of affected areas especially in the region of the kidneys.


Great dryness of throat accompanied by a lumpy feeling.

Craves lemonade, lemon, salt.

Much rheumatism and gout of body joints or gouty nodosities in the joints which are burning hot so much so that hands, feet, arms or legs must be extended out of the bed. When there is gout the  haemorrhages are absent, and when there are haemorrhages the gout will be relieved. An alternation of states as the gouty condition of the veins is in fact a haemorrhagic state

The heel is another area of Sab influence. Farrington says it is suited to "plethoric women who suffer from what they call rheumatic inflammation of the heels. The pain is intermittent, occurs suddenly and is intense while it lasts.

Drawing pain in small of back, from sacrum extending to pubes.
Drawing pain from pubes extending upwards through vagina into uterus.

Repeated menstrual haemorrhages (or may also be due to fibroids) bright red in colour and intermingled with clots. Exhausting pains from the sacrum extending from the back to the front pubes and from the pubes extending upwards to the uterus. Anaemic from constant haemorrhages. The menses may be too copious (flooding) or even be continuous and not stop at all before the next period begins (menorrhagia). Too frequent and prolonged copious menses.

A striking feature of this remedy, as in a few others, is that of the flow, which is bright red and intermingled with dark (black) clots. The clots appear dark due to their lack of tone as a result of retention in the uterus. The haemorrhaging is characterized by its freqwunt repeated but intermittent nature and is always accompanied with dysmenorrhoea (great pain).

Causation for repeated haemorrhaging is the passing of large partially decomposed clots which ripen and then slough off in an intermittent fashion; a situation which can be occasioned by miscarriage, long labour or fibroids as also can excessive general stress and overwork and being in a state of low vitality possibly as a consequence of  much child bearing. An aggravating modality is too much movement.

As a medicine to prevent miscarriage in the third month of pregnancy it is one of the first to consider especially if the characteristic pain from back to the pubes is present. The woman becomes very nervous and hysterical. There is a yellowish, ichorous, fetid leucorrhoea with painful discharges of fetid blood every two weeks inclining to be corrosive, with itching of the vulva. Copious, starch-like leucorrhoea, with drawing pains in the broad of the back through to the pubes.

It is also an important remedy during miscarriage because its symptoms are such as come during a miscarriage when the membranes have ruptured or the ovum passed or when the placenta is about to be expelled. Its usefulness is paramount to establish the normal activities of the uterus so that it will expel whatever membranes are left behind. The curetting is never necessary with this homeopathic remedy.

Male Genitals
Instead of blood clots as is the case with the female we have warts or condylomata on the prepuce in the case of the male accompanied with difficult retraction of the foreskin (phimosis). Urethritis together with a purulent yellow discharge and a burning soreness in the glans may also present.

Sexual desire is increased with violent continuous erections.

Urinary Organs
Burning and throbbing in the region of the kidneys and bladder. Haemorhaging in bladder and kidney. Haematuria.

Inflammation of the bladder with continuous urging to urinate which after much effort is finally expressed slowly on a drop by drop basis.

Bell and Sab, according to Kent, are the two most important remedies for abortion at three months. Bell has similar pains which expel a clot followed by a copious, bright red flow. 

Tthe Bell state differs from Sab in two ways. Firstly the Bell patient is extremely oversensitive to touch, feeling, light, sound etc. A jolt of the bed, a slight touch on the body, a too strong beam of day light, the noise of movement around the room will all aggravate the patient in keeping with the oversensitive nature of Bell.

Secondly with the Bell patient the bright red blood flow appears hot, so much so that it is very noticeable by the oversensitive patient who feels an intense hot burning scalding effect from the parts over which the flow passes. 

Ipec also has a gush of bright red blood fully as copious as Sab but at the beginning of that gush, before it has kept on long enough to produce exhaustion, the face becomes pale, there is nausea and a feeling of faintness, syncope, all out of proportion to the amount of blood lost.

Sec can look like Sab in that it has the expulsive labor-like pains with the expulsion of large clots and copious flow, but unlike Sab the flow is dark and offensive and after a short time it becomes thin and watery, leaving a brown stain difficult to wash out. Also the thin and watery discharge is continuous due to the absence of contractions and the establishment a paralytic uterine state.

Phos is somewhat like Sab in that it has a copious bright red flow, which may or may not contain clots. The distinguishing characteristics  however lie outside the flow. There is an extremely dry tongue and mouth with a violent, unquenchable thirst and craving fro ice-cold water.

Sulphur (Psorinum)
Sab stops the gush at the acute stage of old troublesome lingering haemorrhages which start up fresh at the slightest provocation. The stoppage does not hold however and the haemorrhage recurs. At this stage an antipsoric is needed and Sul is very commonly the remedy.

After Sul has exhausted its effect, according to Kent, Psor, though not laid down in text books for haemorrhages, will often follow successfully in cases of continuous oozing and "frequent recurrence".

Post partum complaints
Genital Condylomata and Warts
(Sab is complementary with Thuj to which it is botanically similar.
Both are great anti sycotic remedies.)
