Vetiver essential oil varies dramatically in aroma depending on where it is grown (soil type, country of origin, etc.). Also known as vetivert, khus, or khus khus, Vetiver has a long history of use and is very well known as the Oil of Tranquility.1åÊIt is obtained from the roots of a tropical grass originally from India and Sri Lanka, but the plant is now grown in many tropical countries. From time immemorial, one of the oldest aromatic uses of vetiver roots is to weave them into mats which, when dampened with water and hung in windows like curtains, cool and scent the air with a pleasant aroma.2

Vetiver oil is thick and, like Patchouli and Sandalwood, improves with age; it is a premium base note and makes an excellent fixative in essential oil formulas. It is used in formulas for arthritis and muscular aches as well as for its sedative, relaxing qualities. It helps stimulate circulation, is good for acne and oily skin, and helps to relieve nervousness while promoting tranquility. Vetiver is also a good grounding oil for those who focus on intellectual activities to the exclusion of the physical, to add to the bath for an exceptional stress-relieving soak, and to use in the case of shock due to, for example, an accident, lost of employment, bereavement, separation, or divorce.3,4,5,6
