Vetiver grass protecting soil slide in a vegetable farm.
Vetiver: The syrup-like amber-dark oil with its earthy, spicy fragrance is distilled during endless hours from the roots of the tropical Vetivergrass. As a root oil it is one of the most grounding of all essential oils and has therefore its corresponding links to the central nervous system. Vetiver is a glandular and circulatory stimulant and a strong enhancer of our immune system. It also increases the absorbing capacity of the tissues, especially of the execretory organs, leading to greater hormonal balance which in tum results in a revitalization and anchoring of the individual.
Vetiver is traditionally used to alleviate fever and for cooling body and mind. Its nourishing, replenishing nature makes it intrinsically “female” and a wonderful aromatic expression of Mother Earth. Applied on the joints or on the skin it helps against inflammatory disorders. With its soft, balsamic texture Vetiver oil enhances skin tissue regeneration and is a good wound-healer and remedy against acne and cuts. It is a delight for the dried out epithel which lacks nourishment from the deeper layers of the skin and conveys a silky, rejuvenated complexion.
A deep tonic-relaxer particularly for massages and baths, Vetiver with its numerous sesquiterpenes balances “in depth” and bestows the pleasure of “being” versus “doing”. It gives energy and stamina and is particularly helpful for individuals who are unable to unwind, who suffer from insomnia due to an overcharge of mental fatigue and who tend to nervous depression.A grounding call for the “astralized” souls that have difficulties to incarnate in the very present moment for those who tend to “flyaway” from the overpowering hardships and challenges of worldly matters. Vetiver-Root: a truly caring, therapeutic angel and a nurturing mother to rebalance and relieve.
