With a unique, exotic aroma, vetiver essential oil is known to provide a calming, grounding effect on emotions—making it ideal for massage therapy and promoting restful sleep.*

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 essential oil has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. It can also be rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. When taken internally, vetiver essential oil can support a heathy immune system.*

Some of my favorite uses for vetiver essential oil:
• Add 1–2 drops to tea or hot drinks during winter time to promote immune-supporting properties*
• Use as a massage oil to calm emotions
• Take a warm bath with a few drops of vetiver essential oil for deep relaxation
• Diffuse with lavender, doTERRA Serenity®, or doTERRA Balance® to calm emotions and lessen stress
• Use a toothpick to help get the desired amount out of container if vetiver is too thick to get out of the bottle. A little goes a long way.

Every essential oil has an emotional component. Vetiver essential oil is The Oil of Centering & Descent. Vetiver oil assist 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 assist them in grounding to the physical world. Vetiver also assists individuals in deeply connecting 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 essential oil 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 travelled 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 door the light and recovery through this downward journey. (Taken from Emotions & Essential Oils: A Modern Resource for Healing)
