Vetiver essential oil is hydro-distilled from the roots of Vetiver, a member of the grass family. The roots of Vetiver grow downward, making this plant ideal to help stabilise the soil and prevent erosion. The oil obtained from these beneficial root systems has been used since the Middle Ages, most commonly as an ingredient in skin care and cologne. The deep, woody and exotic aromas of Vetiver also have soothing and relaxing properties.
This rich and complex oil has been used as early as the 12th century for therapeutic benefit.
Traditionally used in aromatherapy to reduce and relieve mild aches and pains and decrease the symptoms of muscle strain, Vetiver essential oil may also be applied topically to relieve the symptoms of acne. Vetiver can also aid relaxation when diffused and is perfect added to a massage oil.

Everyone is different and reactions to fragrances such as essential oils are no different. For some people (neurodiverse and neurotypical) using essential oils is highly supportive, however it is good to be aware that around 30% of the neurotypical population are sensory sensitive (but not necessarily to smell) and a higher rate (but not all) neurodiverse individuals have sensory sensitivities (again this is general sensory sensitivities, not necessarily to smell). So when planning to use any fragrance, including essential oils, particularly when diffused into a shared environment, we would encourage you to consider the potential for sensory and/or allergy sensitivities of those that will be using the space.
