Essential Oil Tips
Vetiver Essential Oil
Vetiver is a plant, fragrant, perennial grass native to the tropical regions of Asia. It is used as a medicine and as a scent in many men’s soaps and colognes. It is a woodsy and warm scent, an exotic and earthy aroma. Vetiver is thick, so adding V-6 to this oil is great for some faster movement. Diffusing it with Ylang Ylang or Lavender creates great results in the areas of relaxation, anxiety, and balance.
The root of the grass is used to create essential oils and medicines that are known to help with nerve and circulation problems. It helps restore relaxation and balance, treats tired muscles, and helps revitalize dry, dull skin. Vetiver is used to even out skin tone and the essential oil makes your skin look fresh! Vetiver can be applied directly to the skin for relief of stress as well as emotional trauma and shock. Aromatherapy uses of vetiver include calming anxiety, helping with symptoms of insomnia, and lessening joint and muscle pain and rheumatism.
Vetiver is also known for its use in combating insect infestations. It is used to treat lice, and to repel moths and other pesky insects. Vetiver is also used as a flavoring agent in alcoholic beverages! Do not take vetiver if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as it is likely unsafe. Ingestion of vetiver during pregnancy may cause miscarriage, and effects on newborns have not been tested.
