Vetiver Essential Oil Organic
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 certified organic vetiver essential oil is sustainably sourced from India. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and harvested without genetic engineering or irradiation. 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.
