Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides)Image

Vetiver is an essential oil that is distilled from the rootlets and is imported from places like Java or Haiti.


The older the root, the better the oil which also improves with age. It has a heavy, woodsy, earthy-sweet scent. It is known as the tranquility oil.


Mind; This essential oil is a calming oil. Useful just before an interview or visit to a dentist as it seems to settle the nerves. Also helpful for people who feel out of balance and need grounding


Body; This is an essential oil that has a balancing effect on the central nervous system instilling a more centered feeling. Despite its sedative action, very helpful in cases of mental and physical exhaustion. It revitalizes the body by fortifying the red blood corpuscles which are needed to transport the oxygen around the body.

Increased blood flow could alleviate muscular aches and pains and it is said to be useful in cases of rheumatism and arthritis.
Helps restore the body back to health, not least through its ability to promote sleep.
