Exuding an aroma that is at once soothing, calming, and grounding, one doesn't have to wonder why this oil is largely considered as the "oil of tranquillity" in India.
A close relative to Lemongrass and Citronella, Vetiver has a unique earthy, woodsy, and smoky aroma - a scent that you might probably recognise in men's fragrances. It's quite potent so a little goes a long way!
Vetiver boasts of many therapeutic benefits due to its antiseptic, antispasmodic, immune-stimulant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and rubefacient (locally warming) properties. If you're having trouble sleeping, Vetiver can knock you out with its sedative properties! It can also help with depression, stress, anxiety, emotional traumas, and shock.
On your skin, Vetiver is both soothing and cooling. It is also beneficial for clearing acne, acne marks, and other skin blemishes as well as to rejuvenate tired, irritated, or ageing skin. Rich in antioxidants, it's an excellent immune booster and can fight free radicals. One of the most hardworking oils in the aromatherapy world, use Vetiver for muscular rheumatism, cuts, arthritis, sprains, anorexia, and even ticks and termites!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
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.
