VETIVER Essential Oil | Sustainably Harvested
We are delighted to offer such an incredible Vetiver oil. Of all of the essential oils, few capture the aromatic complexity of the earth's botanical bounty as completely as Vetiver grass. Grown in Haiti, this oil is used for therapeutic, meditative and perfuming purposes. Its sweet, rooty, deeply relaxing aroma, which is reminiscent of woods and marshlands, is grounding, cooling and nourishing.
Used for regenerating damaged topsoils and for preventing erosion, Vetiver is easily
propogated. The rich, sensuous, earthy oil of Vetiver is produced by harvesting and distilling the roots of the plant. Although it may be the world's most commonly used perfume fixative—meaning it is an effective base note that holds lighter top notes to the skin—Vetiver is in itself an extremely healing oil to the body and the mind. Used in liniments and massage oils, Vetiver oil promotes comfort and assists the joints. It is also valued as a component in cosmetic preparations for its natural affinity for the skin and its ability to enhance skin health and radiance.
Through its strengthening, tonic, grounding and regenerating effects, it supports and stabilizes the nervous system, making it a good choice for soothing and comforting body and mind. Vetiver promotes emotional equilibrium, purifies the mind and enhances concentration. It also has a strong power of attraction and enhances sensual and romantic moods. Deeply calming, balancing and restorative, Vetiver promotes rejuvenation on all levels and aids relaxation. Vetiver is an excellent choice to keep on your nightside table for promoting deep and revitalizing sleep.

Massage or Perfume Oil: The deliciously rich, sensuous and earthy aroma of Vetiver is one of nature’s most attractive perfumes. Being a very strong base note, Vetiver can easily overtake other oils. For perfumery fixative purposes, when combining oils it is recommended to limit Vetiver to 5% of the total essential oil content. This oil is also extremely tenacious; one drop of Vetiver can linger on the skin for many days.
Other Suggested Uses:
To sooth and support hot, red or dry skin, add a drop of Vetiver oil to your favorite chemical-free, unscented face or body cream or oil.
To reduce the heated effects of too much sun, add two drops of Vetiver oil to tepid bath water and soak, or apply (diluted) onto skin for a cooling effect.
