Vetiver essential oil has an earthy, eclectic, and exotic aroma. It originates from a perennial grass native to the tropical regions in Asia. Because vetiver comes from the steam distillation of the plant’s root, the oil has a woody scent. It was used in ancient times, and the oil’s popularity still exists as an ingredient in colognes and fragrances—especially for men—as well as in soaps and moisturizers. Vetiver is great to diffuse in work and study areas because its diverse aroma helps create an uplifting environment.
Some Reasons I Love Vetiver
- When combining with other essential oils, the woody aroma lends a great base note.
