Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
Vetiver is a strongly scented oil similar to patchouli favoring the earthy, woodsy, smoky, scents that have been steam distilled from the plant roots. It is a thick oil that is considered to have a strong base note, meaning that the aroma may take longer than 12 hours to dissipate from the air. This product is available in a 15 mL amber glass euro bottle.
All Wellness Warrior essential oils are organic.
Vetiver is a great choice for emotional balance, hormonal and nervous system, and skin. It is best used aromatically or massaged onto the bottoms of the feet. When diffused, vetiver relieves stress and helps with emotional traumas and/or shock. Diffuse at night for a restful sleep since it has known sedative reactions to the nervous system.
Anti-anxiety, circulatory tonic, grounding, immune boosting, and skin emollient.
HOW TO USE:
Aromatic – Add 3-4 drops of oil to distilled water and diffuse; inhale directly by cupping your hands around an open bottle and breathe in deeply through your nose.
Topical – Directly apply 1-3 drops of oil to area of concern or to reflex points (this oil can be applied “neat” with no dilution, or dilute using a carrier oil for people with sensitive skin).
Children – Safe for children with proper dilution.
As with all essential oils, it is important to test a small area for skin sensitivity before applying without a carrier oil. Wellness Warrior suggests diluting essential oils with a vegetable based carrier oil, such as raw coconut or jojoba oil. Vetiver has no known side effects but it is recommended to use with caution during pregnancy.
