Our Vetiver Essential Oil is distilled from the roots of Vetiveria zizanioides, a highly aromatic grass that grows especially well in Haiti's tropical climate.
Vetiver Essential Oil is an amber colored, thick essential oil. Aromatically, it possesses a subtle but sweet, smoky, resin-like aroma. Emotionally, it is very grounding, balancing and relaxing. Many love the essential on its own, but it really shines when blended with other oils. It acts as a natural fixative for other aromatics in aromatherapy and perfumery applications. Vetiver Essential Oil blends beautifully with many other essential oils including those in the citrus, wood and spice families.
For topical formulations intended for adults, Essential Oil Safety Edition 2 by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young recommend a dermal maximum of 15% for Vetiver Essential Oil.
Our Vetiver Essential Oil has undergone third party GC/MS testing. Please contact us if you would like to view the report.
