    Stainless steel distillation is what gives this 'light' oil a color that's lighter than in an oil not obtained thru SS distillation. Deep, smoky, earthy aroma. In aromatherapy, some people can barely tolerate the smell while others are affected quite deeply by its aroma which can be likened to the smell of a damp forest floor. This EO is considered antiseptic, aphrodisiac, sedative, nervine....a calming oil, excellent for stress and tension. Settles the nerves. May be useful in helping people ease off tranquilizers.

    This oil is considered a classic for physical, mental and emotional burnout which may result in total exhaustion. On an emotional level, vetiver helps to soothe states of irritability, anger and hysteria. Vetiver is recommended for dry, dehydrated skin. May assist with acne. Its vulnerary and cicatrisant properties are utilized to prevent and reduce wrinkles and stretch marks during pregnancy. Said to cleanse the aura (the energy field around the body) and to strengthen the auric shield which can be instrumental in keeping out disease.

    This EO is said to be very helpful in cases of mental and physical exhaustion. It assists with increasing blood flow which, thereby being able to alleviate muscular aches and pains. It is said to be a tonic to the reproductive system and its relaxing quality seems to have some effect on tension underlying sexual problems. Helpful in cases of insomnia. Blends well with frankincense, geranium, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang. Flash point: 240F.

    Best and Unique Vetiver
    Vetiver is one of my top 5 favorite oils, so I'm prejudiced, and maybe a connoisseur since I've tried many Vetivers in 21 years. This LIGHT VETIVER is the most unique and addictive Vetiver I've found! It's different because it's softer, subtler and less masculine. It doesn't even overpower florals in a blend, and is the perfect base note in any blend. This is soothing, calming, sexy, everything Vetiver is supposed to be emotionally. A beautiful drug, I never run out of this heady balm!

    Lovely scent
    I use this in a blend for CP soap. It's a wonderful quality and adds a nice smokiness to a blend.

    Incredible quality--simply the best!
    I've never been a girly-girl--I've always liked musky scents and even men's cologne on occasion. As a mediterranean climate plant lover, for many years I tried sampling cheap versions of natural store vetiver and was always surprised at how strange and simply unpleasant it smelled. One day I discovered the vetiver EO by a very expensive popular brand and I fell in love, but was immediately heart-broken, after finding that 15ml was just short of $50. After again trying several cheap brands, like the ones that had turned me off the scent originally, I nearly gave up on vetiver, but then I discovered Camden Grey's wildcrafted vetiver and it is equal if not better than the unnamed expensive brand. I LOVE IT. I will never stop purchasing this oil and I thank heaven for Camden Grey, every day!

    A mysterious aura.
    I tried both the dark and light vetiver oils. Both are really beautiful; this one though is nearer to what I thought vetiver was. The smoky/leathery side is really present and it’s somwhat bewitching. It has a dense smell that lingers for a long time. The rooty/earthy side is also very obvious and pleasant. This “light” version is definitely lighter than the dark version, but it’s still heavier than most of the essential oils out there. Light vetiver has a really velvety and mysterious aura – almost a ghostly presence that is never screaming out loud but that you know is there in the shadows. It’s kind of a voodoo scent that will haunt you for a long long time.

    Wasn't sure what to expect-but i loved it!!
    Between the light and dark my favorite is dark. Light is a little more perfumy, whereas the dark has a stronger smokey scent. I, however, tend to like things more potent. I would like to try it in cp soap and see if it stays pretty dominant or if if tones it down any. I could definitely see this in a guys product.
