Vetiver Essential Oil: Uses, Benefits, and Blends

Particularly popular in men’s fragrances, the spicy and seductive aroma of Vetiver will leave you wanting more.

Vetiver Essential Oil Product Details

Vetiver is actually a fragrant grass, similar to lemongrass and citronella. Native to India, the grass now grows in many tropical regions around the world. Today, Indonesia and Haiti are also major producers. Most vetiver is vegetatively propagated, meaning it is essentially a clone of its parent. Vegetative propagation occurs naturally when a bud from the parent plant falls to the ground and regerminates, though it can also be done by growers taking parts of the parent plant and encouraging new growth. The grass itself helps to stabilize soil and combat erosion, in addition to being wildfire resistant. Vetiver oil comes from the roots of the grass, and you will find it in Aromatherapy, cosmetics, soaps, and herbal skincare products.

Soap Making

Vetiver Essential Oil SoapmmakingVetiver Oil is believed to have both antiseptic and detoxifying properties. There are many claims on the Vetiver Essential Oil benefits in terms of skincare, though current research is either not available or conflicting. What we do know is that some of the Vetiver’s core components show antioxidant activity on their own. This gives some indication that vetiver may hold antioxidant properties. Additionally, the scent of Vetiver Oil offers a beautiful fragrance when the oil is added to skincare products, such as soap, which creates added value.


Vetiver is highly popular in Aromatherapy. Among tons of Vetiver Essential Oil uses Aromatherapy is one of the most significant ones. Currently, there is a lack of human research, but studies conducted on rodents found that when the subjects inhaled Vetiver Essential Oil they showed signs of relaxation. Furthermore, other studies done on humans indicate that Vetiver Oil may help improve breathing patterns during sleep. Not getting enough sleep is a major trigger for stress, anxiety, and depression, which means that Vetiver may help reduce these symptoms. 

What Blends Well with Vetiver Essential Oil?

On a deeper note, Vetiver can help stabilize other oils, creating longer-lasting fragrances. Try combining it with Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine, or Lavender for a woodsy, floral aroma. If you prefer something a little brighter, go for Citrus Oils such as Lemon, Grapefruit, and Lime

Precautions: How to Apply Vetiver Essential Oil 

Vetiver Oil is generally considered non-toxic, though, like any essential oil, it is very potent and should never be ingested or applied to the skin without dilution. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffering from an underlying condition, it is always best to seek the advice of a medical professional before using oils. Additionally, pets are more sensitive than we are, and should never come in direct contact with essential oils.

Popular methods of use are:


Add Vetiver Oil to a passive or active diffuser, following manufacturer guidelines. You can also add oil to hot water such as a bathtub or foot soak, or even sniff the oil directly from the bottle for a more immediate effect. 


Add and combine a few drops of Vetiver Oil with your favorite creams and lotions. You can also add it to a carrier oil, and then massage it into the skin. When using topically we advise doing a patch test first. This is where you place a small amount of the diluted oil onto your skin and wait for 24 hours. If no irritation occurs you are okay to move forward.

Worth it

I needed this for a facial oil quite expensive but it's worth it

Appealing during the cold weather

Love the smell of the Vetiver. Is most apt during the cold, whereas it is heavy. Have started to wear it as a single fragrance. The bottle is LEAK PROOF.

Thick and Rich

A little oil can provide a long time effect. Great as a room spray. Smells really strong in the bottle but can be used as a mixture with other oils.
