If you’re familiar with Vetiver essential oil then you know that this oil is renowned for its ability to promote restful slumber by relieving feelings of stress and anxiety. That’s why we use it in our Sleep Blend and products, after all! Deep sleep comes from being tired, as well as being grounded mentally and spiritually. This oil is widely used to help center the Root Chakra, where our sense of fear and anxiety are governed. Use with oils like Cedarwood, Frankincense, and Patchouli during meditation or in stressful situations to evoke a sense of serenity and focus (you can also use pre-formulated Grounded Chakra Blend). Topically, Vetiver can also calm acne-prone skin and reduce oil. To try, add to homemade face wash. Its soothing properties make Vetiver beneficial in easing minor muscle and joint pain by reducing inflammation and promoting better circulation. Use it in muscle rubs. Want to give one of the special men in your life the gift of essential oils? Try Vetiver. With its musky and earthy aroma it’s a wonderful addition to homemade cologne, beard wax, or aftershave.
