Vetiver is one of those deep base oils that instantly transports me to being in a damp, cool forest. Vetiver is renown for being ultra grounding, which makes perfect sense given its origin as a root, and therefore is associated with our base chakra.
The 3,000 year old essential oil was first documented in the 12th century and has been used widely by many cultures throughout the world. In India and Sri Lanka, ancient Hindu refers to Vetiver as “oil of tranquility”.
