Rooty and earty smell!I bought this as I know its a part of some good perfumes and I was not disappointed. Its a calming and rooty smell. I wouldnt use this oil alone in the diffuser but a solid combination with this was: 3 drops vetiver + 3 french lavender + 3 sandalwood (diluted from aura cacia) + 2 ylang ylang (if there’s more it will be too sweet). This combination is very classy and smells not too herbal and not too earthy or sweet, just perfect like in a cery expensive hotel. The oil is more dense than others along with sandalwood that is in jojoba oil thats why better clean the diffuser better after this blend. My most fav blend so far is with this oil!
This vetiver oil is a great value for the 0.5 fl oz size bottle! The Aura Cacia brand is reputable, and this essential oil is grown and processed in Haiti. I use it to help reduce tremors in my neck and hands by rubbing 2 drops on my temples, back of neck, and on the bottom of my big toes twice a day.
Earthy and woody scent which blends well with other essential oils of floral or mint notes. Aura Cacia produces great quality essential oils and I trust this brand. I mostly use this in a diffuser or aromatherapy oil burner. This oil helps me to feel grounded too. A few drops will be sufficient as the smell is rather intense.
I have been using it mainly in an insomnia blend to make me fall asleep at night. The blend works and helps me relax and fall asleep faster. It smells good and its texture is really thick (takes time to pour out of the bottle). I made the insomnia blend by using the aromatherapy book by Valerie Ann Worwood.
The vetiver oil has a very earthy scent, and is said to be very grounding. I personally feel the smell can be a little too earthy so I don't use it as much as my other oils, but sometimes put it underneath my feet to calm down. or in a bath with lavender or ylang ylang. Aura cacia are very reasonably priced oils, and from what I have read and researched on them, they have a wide range and an ethical approach to production.
