Vetiver Essential Oil is very grounding and the aroma is very earthy. It takes me right back to the woods I used to hike in as a child during the fall when the leaves are falling...
So, emotionally vetiver is very grounding and calming; any may support recovering from emotional upheaval or stress.
One of the oils that is highest in sesquiterpenes, vetiver was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children's behavior.
I designed this section so you could use it as a fun and easy reference guide on Vetiver. It will tell you how to use your oil and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun tips, testimonials and oil trivia!
As I receive new tips and testimonials on the benefits of Vetiver oil they will be added to the page, so check back often!

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?
This oil brings us immediately back to be attuned to Mother Earth and earth energy which is more of the rich nurturing soil, the plants that are grown from that soil, or the transformation of plant material back into the earth (think of a tree decaying, or the wet leaves of fall returning to the earth).
For this reason it also attracts and attunes us to nature spirits, especially of the forest and plains.
For these reasons, it is an oil of transformation through earth energies. The plant reminds us that life is cyclic and the more we can gracefully sway with those cycles the more we won't be swept away by them. It is a time to be kind and nurturing to self.
"Use me to ground to mother earth when life gets rocky or when going through transitions that require mother earth sense and nurturing" was the message I received from the plant.
This oil resonates with horses so much that it almost seems part of them. It's a must have for the barn.
What Chakra is Affected? The heart which aligns the root chakra. Promotes balance of the central nervous system which does not have a specific chakra.
How Do I Use It?
Can this Oil be Used for Animals? Yes, this is a great oil to use for animals.
Note About Animals: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Citrus products and oils in particular that are not of therapeutic grade! Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.
