Vetiver Essential Oil Essential Oil
- Vetiver is a wonderful oil that brings serenity and calm to your blends. Effective for bringing you to the ‘here and now’, it is excellent for when you are feeling overwhelmed and depleted. It also acts as a wonderful sedative, particularly around emotional issues, so it can be helpful at the end of the day to aid in rest and relieve fatigue.
- In a massage blend, it may help to reduce muscular aches and pains by relaxing the body and therefore allowing it to feel looser. It’s also great to nourish dry or mature skin.
Smoky, sophisticated and expansive, Vetiver pure essential oil, distilled from the roots of the plant, which grow in strong, intricate systems under the earth, is known as ‘the oil of tranquility.’ The calming effect of Vetiver makes it a perfect addition to any aromatherapy blend designed to soothe and unwind the mind and body, and is also perfect to aid meditation as a wonderfully grounding oil.
Vetiver is a very thick, viscous oil by nature, so we recommend gently warming the bottle of oil in a cup of warm water before use.
