vetiver
Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of Vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilization. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, and its ability to promote circulation, Vetiver is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. Vetiver helps promote focus and mental clarity. It can also be rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. When taken internally, Vetiver acts as an overall tonic to the body’s systems while promoting immunity and overall health.

Vetiver ✧ The Oil of Centering & Descent
Vetiver oil assists in becoming more rooted in life. Life can scatter one’s energy and cause one to feel split between different priorities, people and activities. Vetiver brings the individual back down to earth. It assists them in grounding to the physical world. Vetiver also assists individuals in deeply connecting with what they think and feel. In this way, Vetiver is incredibly supportive in all kinds of self-awareness work. It helps uncover the root of an emotional issue.

  Vetiver challenges individuals’ need to escape their pain. It centers them in Self and guides them downward to the root of their emotional issues. It helps them find relief, but not through avoidance. Relief comes after they have traveled within and met the core of their emotional issue. Vetiver will not let them quit. It grounds them in the present moment and carries them through an emotional catharsis. The descent into the Self assists individuals in discovering deeper facets of their being. Vetiver opens the doors to light and recovery through this downward journey.
