Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides) has a heavy, earthy fragrance similar to patchouli with a touch of lemon. Vetiver oil is psychologically grounding, calming, and stabilizing. One of the oils that is highest in sesquiterpenes, vetiver was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children’s behavior. Combined with Lavender and Cedarwood, Vetiver is successfully used in helping kids and adults with ADD, ADHD and other sensory issues.
Vetiver has a calming and soothing effect on the central nervous system and is a wonderful oil to help quiet an overactive, exhausted, or stressed mind. It is also said to be a good choice in helping to better manage anger, irritability, or compulsive behavior, as well as helping with occasional sleeplessness. Vetiver may help when coping with stress and to recover from emotional trauma and shock.
Vetiver can also be used for all things muscular such as, rheumatism, sprains, and arthritis. Vetiver encourages normal function of the circulatory system and can help relieve occasional join stiffness and muscle cramping. Treat yourself by massaging Vetiver into overworked muscles. #vetiver #yleo
