Scientific Name: Vetiveria zizanioides
Uses: Having a complex woody, caramel aroma, vetiver is prized for use in fragrances. Its calming, grounding properties make it a great addition to diffusers and massage oils. It cools body temperatures and can help relieve fever discomfort.
Suggested Usage: Have trouble sleeping? Night sweats? Vetiver oil can assist with sleeplessness and the relief of hot flashes, both of which can disturb sleep during menopause. Mix with clary sage and geranium oil into a carrier oil and apply to the chest or bottom of your feet before bed for a peaceful night sleep. Vetiver oil has also been used to help facilitate a sense of calm and the ability to focus in ADHD.
