Have you ever smelt Vetiver? It smells like a forest after a fire has gone through.
Although an “acquired” smell, it does have wonderful qualities of stilling a busy mind, and grounding. Calming and stabilising, it is also good for managing stress or when recovering from emotional trauma. Some find it helpful to use when settling down to sleep.
It’s probably not surprising that the oil is found in the roots of the plant.
How do I use it?
Vetiver is a thick oil, so it may be easier to remove the dropper from the bottle.
Apply a drop or two over the lower chakras – base, sacral and solar plexus. Inhaling and diffusing it are also good options.
Do yourself a favour and only use 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil. Personally I prefer to use Young Living oils as I know and trust the quality – Buy some now
