Vetiver oil comes from a perennial grass native to tropical regions in Asia and has an earthy, exotic aroma. It is steam distilled from the plant’s root, giving it a warm, woodsy scent that has been used for its fragrance since ancient times. The oil remains popular today, and Vetiver oil uses include colognes and fragrances—especially for men—as well as soaps and moisturizers.
Vetiver essential oil is also great for work and study areas, since its complex aroma helps create an uplifting environment. Because of its viscosity, it’s recommended that users dilute Vetiver essential oil with a carrier oil before using it in a diffuser.
Vetiver Essential Oil Uses
- Diffuse its invigorating aroma in an office or study room to create a relaxing, welcoming space where you can think freely.
- Add 5–10 drops to an evening bath for a relaxing, uplifting aroma.
- Combine a few drops of Vetiver oil with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex and massage on skin for a calming experience that also moisturizes.
