Vetiver- Young Living

🌙 FUN FACTS 🌙

Vetiver is a grass, related to citronella or lemongrass, that is steam distilled from its roots. Actually, almost every part of the plant has been used for medicinal purposes, but the roots seem to be most popular.  It has a tendency to go out of stock because it is only harvested late in the fall and is typically available only once a year. It has a very earthy, almost smoky aroma. Vetiver has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years and is considered a sacred oil. Known in India as the oils of tranquility. It’s fragrance is reminiscent of Patchouli with lemon-like undertones. Surprisingly, considering the earthiness of its fragrance, vetiver is used extensively in perfumes

🌙 WHAT IT DOES 🌙

The chemical composition of vetiver oil is extremely complex. It mainly comprises sesquiterpenes and sesquiterpene derivatives – sesquiterpenes, sesquiterpene alcohols, sesquiterpene ketones and sesquiterpene esters, this oil is a sesquicentennial-king!
