Vetiver Essential Oil

Vetiver essential oil has a sweet and very heavy, woody, earthy aroma. The color of the oil is amber to brownish. It is steam distilled from the roots of a lengthy perennial grass..

The Aromatherapy Place also offers Vetiver Java. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of both Vetivers. There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.

Vetiver Essenial Oil is also known as the "Oil of Tranquility."

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Vetiver essential oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Unscruplous producers often adulterate their essential oils. Auroma maintains strict guidelines to ensure that all plants used for essential oil distillation are grown wild, in unpolluted areas, or are organically grown, and further ensures that the length of time between harvesting and the distillation process is kept to an absolute minimum. Every batch, every time!
