Hailed as "The Oil of Tranquillity", one can pretty much guess what this essential oil excels at. Yup, it's known for its calming and grounding effect on emotions and is an excellent sedative for both the mind and the spirit. Needless to say, it's a must-have for those who practice yoga, meditation, or those who struggle with stress and anxiety.
Steam distilled from the roots of Vetiveria Zizanioides, a native of tropical Asia, this oil has a strong earthy, smokey, and woody aroma. Besides its grounding and calming properties, Vetiver is also a natural antiseptic, antispasmodic, immune-stimulant, rubefacient, anti-inflammatory, and cicatrizant.
Tough day at work? Blend with any of your favourite citrus or floral oils and diffuse to create a calm environment and relieve stress, restlessness, and anxiety, or curb emotional outbursts. At night, its soothing aroma will help you relax and drift off to dreamland!
Acting as a tonic to the circulatory, immune, and digestive systems, you can also dilute 15 drops of Vetiver in 30mls of your chosen carrier oil for a stimulating and rejuvenating massage. For a healing and relaxing soak in the tub, infuse your bath water with 5 drops of Vetiver essential oil. It's helpful for treating skin infections, boosting the immune system, and improving the overall health of your blood vessels, pancreas, and liver!

ECO. essential oils are sourced from ethical sources and chosen from suppliers specifically to contain the best active constituents. ECO. essential oil blends have been crafted and blended from the pure essences of plants; their single oils are 100% pure and natural, and highly concentrated with therapeutic properties.

Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
