  Vetiver, Indian (no ratings yet)
Vetiveria zizanioides, wild, hydro-distilled roots, India.


Deep, smooth, the ultimate base note to anchor your aromatic blends, and ground you in the here and now. This is a fresh distillation that should age and mature beautifully. Ideal for blending.

Due to the worldwide shortage of good Vetiver our supplier has doubled his price since the first of this year. We regret that we have had to pass the increased costs on to you. 

Emotionally, Vetiver is very grounding and balancing; I value it for this. Vetiver is a key ingredient in our anti-anxiety blend, Reunité. It is also very relaxing, a mild sedative, useful for stress I would not be without it, and use it daily blended with Neroli, Petitgrain, and a touch of Citrus.

I’ve seen Vetiver recommended in treatments for anorexia; and have read that it stimulates production of red blood cells and that it is useful for “aches and pains.” It balances sebum production, so is useful in treating both oily and dry skin.

Vetiver is far too thick to come out of the largest orifice reducers we have. When you receive a bottle of it, you will need to remove the reducer and pipette or pour the oil out. Be sure to replace the reducer when you're done as it creates a seal between the bottle and cap.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 5 to 8 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life. (This is the official estimate.  Our experience shows that with proper storage it could be much longer.)

GC/MS Analysis:
Batch No. IN-48504
Batch No. In-58774

BLENDS WITH: All our Vetiver oils blend beautifully with Jasmine, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Petitgrain, and Rose. They are perfect in any blend that needs a sweet base note to anchor it.
