The “oil of tranquility” is a tall, tufted perennial scented grass with a straight stem that is a vibrant golden-yellow color. The dark amber oil comes from the roots making this very grounding oil. Vetivert strengthens the mind-body connection and centers our inner core. It is very relaxing and helps ease stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. Working through the Solar-Plexus Chakra, it enhances our self-confidence and personal power.
Vetivert is also great for skincare, especially for oily skin and acne, and removes toxins from the blood stream. It has a relaxing and calming effect on the nervous system and aids muscular pain.
