The Story

Vetiver: Vetiveria zizanioides (L.) Nash

Why vetiver?  Vetiver roots have been used in the East to scent linens and clothes for many years. The essential oil, found within the root tissues, has a sweet, woody, and earthy aroma reminiscent of patchouli, only richer. As such, it is a wonderful fixative and blends well with many essential oils used in perfumery for men and women. Plus, some people find vetiver’s complex aroma helps with concentration and focus—an added perk!

Quality Assured: Our vetiver essential oil is responsibly sourced from India. The essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of the vetiver plants that were grown using organic principles. Every batch of oil is produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
