The day I first bought vetiver, I was disappointed. I’d heard fantastic things about this oil . . . . but I opened the bottle, took a whiff, and closed it back up. Did not like the scent at all!
Then my husband came home extremely stressed and could not stop thinking about a really bad event that occurred during the day and all of the possible outcomes from that event — he was overthinking it, just like we all do in high stress. Out of desperation, I pulled out that bottle of vetiver and diffused a couple of drops of it with a couple of drops of lavender. WOW! His mind calmed down and he was able to relax. I was thrilled!
Since then, vetiver essential oil has been a “go to” for high stress. It allows us to become calm and relaxed before bedtime (as long as one of us hasn’t had too much caffeine). I’ve also grown used to the scent to the point that I now love it! Maybe that’s because I know how vetiver grounds and balances my emotions. Business is stressful and this little “bottle of calm” is high on my list of favorites . . . so much so that, when my bottle runs too low to get drops out, I add a few drops of lavender to it and swirl it around to use in my diffuser. I won’t waste a bit of this oil!
In blends for skin, vetiver is always a wonderful addition (in tiny amounts). It’s good whether you have dry or oily skin because it has a wonderful balancing action, much like it helps balance emotions. I like to add it to nighttime facial blends with a nice citrus and touch of lavender.
Remember, with vetiver, less is better. You can always add another drop to a blend or diffuser but you can’t take it back out. Keep a light hand with vetiver essential oil.
This is one of the few oils that we highly recommend purchasing the version with the extra glass pipette dropper because it’s a thick oil and doesn’t always like to come out of euro droppers (some of you call this an orifice reducer). If you do purchase the glass pipette dropper version, please remember to keep it away from children!
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.
