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.

Features & Benefits

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.

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.
