Used for its strong earthy fragrance since antiquity, therapeutically Vetiver is a deeply grounding, cooling and balancing oil for both emotional and physical ailments. It is known as the oil of tranquillity and is considered a tonic to restore vitality and harmony.

Nature/Essence – Strengthening & Calming

Vetiver is a nourishing and cooling skin oil especially recommended for irritated, damaged or devitalised skin. It has healing and strengthening properties helpful to minimise scars and stretch marks, and rejuvenate and tone aging or tired skin.

Vetiver is recommended during menopause and premenstrual times to aid hormonal and emotional balance. It is also used to ease tense muscles, joint aches and stiffness. It helps release deep-seated tension and supports healthy connective tissue and circulation. Use when a cooling effect is desired.

Vetiver is a wonderful oil to restore vitality when feeling burnt out and exhausted. It helps protect those who are oversensitive or traumatised, helps calm irritability and anger, and restores balance to a highly-strung nervous system.

Vetiver can be diffused in the home during meditation or times of stress to create a grounding and strengthening atmosphere. It is also said to enhance sensuality and research has confirmed its insect repellent properties.

Earthy masculine smell

Looking forward to making some perfume blends for my husband using this! Just got a sample size but will likely get more :)

The smell is very strong. There should be a diluted version.

Very strong vetiver

This is a very strong essential oil, hence the oil is pure. The oil is potent, just a few drops in diffuser, it fills up the whole room. Therefore, you have to be careful, of not over mixing the oil. I use this oil with lavender and it’s good to calm me down especially during nighttime before hit the bed.
