Vetiver Essential Oil

OH SWEET NECTER OF THE EARTH (or the Vetiver root)

 

This is a “daily use” essential oil, it’s also known as the liquid sedative 😉 Or according to Dr Axe, it is the Essential Oil for Brain and Emotional Health. So hence why I use it on a daily basis. Vetiver also has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used a lot in perfumes, I actually like using it in my own “purefum” with Bergamot + Jasmine. SO YUM.

It is a super grounding, calming essential oil that is ideal for support emotions and also for massages. It’s apparently good in hot drinks during winter time but I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet! It’s also great for adding with some lavender or balance in a hot bath, plus a glass of red + a good book! It’s used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to treat muscle aches, fevers, arthritis pain and headaches.

Every night, I use it in my diffuser with Lavender + Cedarwood, and when I just can’t relax I rub some behind the back of my ears diluted and I’m usually out like a light! And if I am super stressed/worked up/down during the day I do the same and it is super relaxing!
