Vetiver Essential Oil

(Vetiveria zizanioides)

The Emotional Benefits:

  • The oil of going deep within
  • Incredibly grounding and stabilizing in times of stress or anxiousness
  • Use when you feel scattered, disconnected, avoidant of stress, or destabilized by it
  • Slows the mental spiraling so you can relax, rest, or meet your needs

Affirmations to Use with Vetiver:

  • I easily release the cares of the day and fall into a deeply restful sleep. I know tomorrow will take care of itself.
  • I am present and grounded right now. I am safe amidst all this mess.
  • I bring a deep self-awareness to how I’m feeling and what I’m needing. I choose to honor myself in this situation and encourage others to do the same.

Cool Stuff About Vetiver Oil

Vetiver oil comes from the root of the Vetiver plant. You can find it in perfumes, food and beverages, and it’s (oddly) even used to mend roofs. It is especially popular in India.

Other Health Benefits:

  • Termite repellant
  • Soothes skin irritation
  • Focus and calming in kids
  • Also calms anxious dogs when diffused or used topically

How to Use Vetiver Essential Oil:

  • Use up to 5-8 drops in your diffuser.
  • Dilute for internal use in a capsule.
  • For physical uses, dilute and apply to area of concern. (For dogs, dilute as though you’re diluting for an infant or child, and apply to the pad of their paw.)
  • For emotional uses, dilute and apply to lower energy centers, sacrum, feet, back of neck, or down the spine.

Precautions: Avoid the eyes, inner ears, or other sensitive areas, unless you’re sure you know what you’re doing. Watch for skin sensitization. If irritation occurs, do not add water; apply Fractionated Coconut or other carrier oils and wipe off. Use mindfully during pregnancy.
