Aroma: The complexity of this aroma is amazing. It is a very rich, warm, sensual, exotic, and wonderfully sweet aroma upon the first smell. I find it to also have a subtle earthy and smoky aspect that rounds out the rich smell from the roots it is distilled from. It is aromatically pleasing for any masculine blend, but soft enough for even the most sensitive of noses. It blends very well with rose, jasmine, clary sage, and most citrus oils.
Personal notes: I love oil on its own - it has an amazing ability to ground and soothe my nerves when I have pushed myself a little too far. It is also one that helps to set the mood for a romantic evening.
Safety Data: The dermal maximum rate for this particular oil will vary from batch to batch depending on the amount of isoeugenol content IF it has any. Tisserand & Young recommend 15% based on 1.3% isoeugenol content. Should the amount of isoeugenol be higher than 1.3% in our analysis we provide from the chemist, please adjust your dilution rate accordingly.
Usage ideas: Create your own relaxing and romantic massage blend:
- 1 drop of Vetiver
- 1 drop of Rose
- 1/2 ounce carrier oil
Emotional/Energetic Qualities: Grounding, calming during stressful transitions, helps take the load off the nervous system, balancing, protective while providing strength, and is soothing to nerves.

- This is a very thick essential oil. Even with our largest orifice reducer, you may need to remove it and use a pipette to utilize it. Just remember to put the orifice reducer back when you are finished so no additional air will cause oxidation.
