DESCRIPTION

Vetiver oil is a very popular ingredient in perfumes, soaps, and toiletries. Known as the 'oil of tranquility' as it is known to have excellent calming properties, Vetiver oil works to calm and soothe the mind,  Vetiver is also used as an effective treatment for physical and mental exhaustion, as well as insomnia. 

It is used as a general ache and pain reliever, especially for arthritis, rheumatism, and muscular pain.

Vetiver is reputed to regulate hormonal secretions of oestrogen and progesterone.  This makes it a good oil to use during menopause where the hormones need supplementing and the grounding and cooling effects will help to reduce the symptoms of hot flushes.  It is also suggested that Vetiver is useful for PMS.

In skin care Vetiver oil can assist in strengthening the body's connective tissue, making it beneficial for weak, loose or fatigued skin.

    Pure Nature is my favourite place to buy oil... They are affordable, good quality, and have quick shipping. I love using this oil on my feet before bedtime for deep sleep. I don't think I've ever slept as well as I have when I used this oil!

    So impressed with this oil! Very viscous - and I like to combine with Pure Nature's Cypress and Frankincense (3 drops each in my diffuser) for a very myrrhish calming/meditative blend.
