Vetiver Essential Oil 10mL
The deep, smoky and earthy fragrance of vetiver essential oil has been likened to the earthy smell of a damp forest floor. Steam distilled from the roots of vetiver grass (Vetiver zizanioides), vetiver essential oil is often used as a fixative in perfumes, and a little goes a long way.
The roots of vetiver grass are said to symbolise vitality, and the essential oil is often used in men's colognes. As a therapeutic essential oil, vetiver is said to soothe the nervous system during times of irritability, stress or tension.
Often quoted from The Journal of Aromatherapy, Peter Holmes describes vetiver as being benficial for grounding one's thoughts:
"mulch into the ground scattered ideas and abstract intellectual ideas into more practical-earth centred concepts."
Like many heavier essential oils, vetiver tends to get better with age and can become quite viscous too. We recommend popping out the little plastic dripolator out of the bottle if it becomes too sticky to dispense by drops.
