Vetivert Essential Oil Variations
Two amazing vetivert's under one roof. In the amber corner we have our Therapeutic range product offering amazing value for money and packing a powerful punch. It has a deep, smoky, woody aroma with just a suggestion of sweetness. Fantastic way of adding a base note to a blend.
In the green corner we have our Soil Association Certified Organic Vetivert. We find our organic producers pour their heart and soul into the oils and as such the quality can be even higher. This one has more depth and a slightly more rounded aroma.
The health benefits of Vetivert can be attributed to its properties as an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, sedative and tonic substance . It is also used extensively in the perfume industries, including perfumes for the body, room fresheners, and coolers, as well as cosmetics, soaps, oils and as a flavoring agent.
This oil is said to have an aphrodisiac effect. It also enhances the libido and arouses feelings of sexual desire. Certain components of this oil stimulate certain portions of brain. Wow!
