Vetiver Essential Oil
Vetiver has a rich sweet earthy and woody scent. The essential oil is extracted from the root of a tall Indian grass. It is used to strengthen weak skin, and to tone and revitalise congested, ageing or tired skin. Use vetiver in formulations to minimise the appearance of scars and stretch marks. When used in massage, vetiver helps to promote healthy circulation and support connective tissue. Vetiver evokes a deep sense of tranquillity and has the ability to calm, ground and restore the mind in times of exhaustion or emotion upheaval.
Directions Essential oils are suitable for use in oil burners, diffusers or vaporisers. Simply add a few drops of your chosen essential oil in water or suitable carrier recommended for your diffuser. To create a therapeutic massage oil or nourishing body oil dilute your essential oil in a carrier oil as recommended below.

ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY
Do not apply essential oils to your skin undiluted. Some essential oils, when diluted are suitable for use in skincare formulations. Please contact us for more information if you are using essential oils on your skin for safe dilution ratios. Generally 1-2% of essential oil diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil is considered safe. Some essential oils can cause irritation even in dilution and are not suitable in skincare.
We do not recommend ingesting essential oils. Essential oils are very potent plant extractions and can cause irritation and damage to your mucous membranes as well as other health risks such as poisoning. Ask our Herbalists about safe plant extracts for internal use. Store essential oils away from children at all times. Seek advice before using essential oils for children. If you have a skin condition, are pregnant, have epilepsy or asthma, or are in any doubt about any condition you may have please contact us or a suitable health practitioner for further guidance.
