This one surprised me!

I'd heard vetiver was a great base note, but I was sceptical because when I smelt testers in shops it really wasn't appealing. But I took the plunge and bought some, and it blew me away! It really does add amazing depth to your blends. Just avoid spilling any on your fingers if you don't want to smell like a musty campfire for days (don't ask me how I know this).

Happy customer!

I had read about Vetiver E.O and wanted to buy it for anxiety I knew it was a thick oil so I purchased the 10 ml dropper and am so glad I did because I was shaking the bejeebers out of it with no success so I popped on the dropper and dropped in my drops no problem.

Vetiver to calm and slow down

I purchased this for my young son to try. He gets a bit hyped up at times and needs help to calm down. I've used it in a roller ball with FCO, making it super easy to apply. I was surprised by its effectiveness and today my son asked for his 'special roller' to help calm down a bit.
