While the recipes of Frencham, Collins, and Blumentrost represent western medical practice, the recipes given in the Russian Prokhladnyi Vertograd or Garden of Health (1672) cast juniper in a slightly different light.
The Prokhladnyi Vertograd expands on the Gartder Gesundheit (and calls back to Dioscorides) in suggesting that juniper branches or bark "be placed in a corner and made to smoke, so that no kind of dangerous uncleanliness will either touch or befall the person who is enveloped by that smoke." (46) Indeed, burning juniper branches to serve as a fumigant, spiritual or otherwise, survived in Russia well into the 18th century.
The fascinating Reestr iz dokhtorskikh nauk (Register of Doctoral Sciences, 1696), like the earlier Prokhladnyi Vertograd, presents a heady mix of West European and Russian, secular and Orthodox monastic medical practices.
