VETIVERT (also known as Vetivera Zizanoides)
Vetivert is a strong and woody oil with sweet, honey like qualities. It
can be known to be very calming and balancing. It is often used as an
anti-anxiety aid and to treat depression. It blends extremely
well with Jasmine, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Petitgrain and Rose. It
can overpower a blend so only a little is needed. I choose to use it
time and again and find that it works beautifully in unison with my favourite oil; mandarin.
Vetivert is often used in cosmetics, perfumes and body soaps. In ancient
times it was used in the Far East as perfume, often by men as it does
not have the floral scent that many other essential oils share.
It is not known to have any cautions and is non-sensitising, nor-irritating and non-toxic.
As with mandarin I truly love this oil and I often choose it for my clients.
