    Botanical Name: Vetiveria zizanioides

    Plant Part: Root

    Country of Origin: Haiti

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    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.

    Incredible depth and value
    (Portland, OR, US) | April 13th, 2012
    This Vetiver has a smell of dry earth, green sandalwood, fresh green moss, frankincense, myrrh, honey, fresh-cut grass and dewey sunrise (if that had a scent) all in one! It simultaneously awakens you and seems to slip your mind into instant alpha brain waves - excellent for meditation, writing, healing, pranayama or any creative work you can imagine. I'm not brave enough to try using it on my facial skin yet, as I am sticking with oils like sandalwood and others that I know help my skin already, but suffice to say, this is a VERY high quality vetiver essential oil at a very good price. I'm impressed, & I'm not easily impressed in the essential oil realm!
    Intensely smoky vetiver
    (New York, NY, US) | October 16th, 2011
    I've smelled many vetivers and this is tied for best. Unusually sharp-smoky quality makes it ideal for masculine fragrances - doesn't have the sweet/round topnote of Indian vetivers. Dark, deep, and tenacious. If you haven't smelled vetiver and are reading this, you should try this one. As usual, CG offers great value.
    Perfect woody base
    (Denver, CO, US) | April 19th, 2011
    This Vetiver is the one that really got me hooked! I now use it in most products from face serum to liquid soap and I'm now working with it in both masculine and feminine colognes. I find it just rounds everything out so well, it's become my base note go-to. The combination with rosewood is a new favorite of mine.
    Powerful, Exotic,
    (Winston-Salem, NC, US) | January 27th, 2011
    Vetiver is a favorite EO of mine. As is well known, it is used extensively in the fragrance industries as a long-lasting, spicy, oriental, woody base note in many parfum and cologne blends. It is typically used in "masculine" formulations but also works very well in "feminine" blends when used sparingly and in conjunction with floral, citrus and green notes. This particular version is a favorite of my favorites. Haitian vetiver has a slightly smoky character but it seems much less intense than the sometimes overwhelming smokiness of Indonesion vetiver. CG also offers it at the most competitive price I've found from a public online source. Love it!
    Vetiver Essential Oil
    (Clarksville, TN, US) | January 10th, 2011
    This is a very strong earthy scent. The smell appears to have a combination of earth and smells of green plants. Not a stand- alone scent! But combined wtih other essential oils - it's very pleasing. I use this for my 'manly' soaps. Combined with Cedarwood and sage, it's a great bass note.
    Great for stretch marks!
    (Pine City, MN, US) | September 4th, 2010
    I got this to put in my stretch mark and face creams and am very pleased with it for therapeutic purposes. Not a scent I'd seek out, but it does good things for you!
