Vetiver Essential Oil

Rated 4.7 out of 5
Based on 49 reviews
Possibly the most balancing of oils known, Vetiver is a calming and grounding oil used commonly in prayer, meditation, and chakra work. Both earthy and woody, Vetiver pairs well with frankincense, lemon, orange, juniper, and ylang, ylang.

Medicinally, Vetiver is used to boost mood and create feelings of calmness when diffused or used in aromatherapy. Cosmetically, Vetiver is used to help nourish and enrich, making it great for moisturizing and evening out rough skin.
100% Pure Essential Oil
Why Purity Matters Essential Oils are sourced from all over the world, and not every source is created equal. Some producers add dilutants, fillers, other oils, or even chemicals to their oils before they ship them out. Though all Wholesale Botanics oils are safe to use as directed, this 100% pure oil is the most natural version of Essential Oil possible, free of any additional substances.
Indonesian vetiver is prized for its deep, rich aroma ideal for DIY fragrances

Vetiver grown in Indonesia, like that sold by Wholesale Botanics, is treasured for its intense, earthy, and smoky aroma, which distinguishes it from vetiver sourced from other regions like Haiti or India. The soil and climatic conditions in Indonesia impart a robust, rich character to the vetiver oil, making it especially sought after in perfumery for its depth and long-lasting base notes. Additionally, Indonesian vetiver often carries a slightly cooler, green note that adds complexity and freshness, appealing particularly to those looking for a bold and grounding scent profile.

Vetiver's high sesquiterpene and vetiverol content causes herbal, earthy aroma and natural relaxation

Vetiver oil, known for its calming sesquiterpenes and grounding vetiverols, is a natural relaxant that helps reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. Its soothing, earthy scent stabilizes emotions and fosters a sense of tranquility, making it a favorite in aromatherapy for alleviating tension and enhancing sleep quality.

Wholesale Botanics essential oils are carefully distilled and evaluated to ensure aromatic and therapeutic potency.

Features & Benefits

Helpful for anxiety when added to a hot bath

Beneficial for meditation and aromatherapy

An excellent antioxidant boost for the skin

Vetiver is a grass that thrives in sandy or clay soil and tropical/subtropical climates, and it is native to places like India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia. Growing to an average height of 1.5 meters, vetiver grass has long, tall stems with purple/brown flowers and rigid leaves. To make vetiver essential oil, the plant roots are usually aged first before being soaked in water. During this process, the oil is released and then skimmed off the surface of the water before being steam distilled.  Vetiver is a close cousin to other aromatic grasses such as citronella and lemongrass and is known for its smoky, woody and earthy aroma. The oil’s calming qualities make it great for us in aromatherapy, meditation, and topically on the skin. Its strong, distinctive aroma also makes it a popular ingredient in men’s cologne.

What Our Customers Think

"Vetiver has a lovely smoky scent. I've tried it from a few suppliers and I like it here best-the scent seems richer and fuller." - Hailey 04/25/22
"Vetiver Grass is probably my favorite scent in the world so I'm a bit bias, but this EO delivers again on purity of product. An extremely earthy aroma that is like a more masculine patchouli. It is also a bit more more subtle than other base notes." - Mike 04/10/22
"I took a risk and purchased this EO without ever having smelled it before and that was one of the best decisions that I have ever made! This EO is deeply earthy, complex with a smoky base and spicy middle notes. I love using this in combination with a rose oil to make perfume and hand balm with beeswax." - Briony 03/06/22

Generally good. I got my little bottle in good condition.

I had sent an email to the company because I couldn't tell if it had been shipped. Someone got right back to me about it and I was reassured.
