Vetivert is steam distilled from the roots of the scented grass native to India and Sri Lanka. Some of its main chemical components are vetiverole, vitivone, and vetivenes.
While vetivert has been used as a perfume base (fixative) for thousands of years, the fact that it is an immunostimulant is less well known. It has mild rubefacient qualities, making it good in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism and muscular pain. The most valuable use of this oil, however, is its ability to relieve stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It is a very grounding, stable oil and is very useful when used after a shock or during a traumatic period in life.
This oil blends well with sandalwood, jasmine, patchouli, lavender, clary sage, and ylang ylang.
Avoid in the first trimester of pregnancy.
