DAY 23: Vetiver Essential  Oil

 

Hands up if you are getting a good nights sleep?

I recently held an essential oils class and all the wonderful people who came along shared that like me, a good nights sleep was not something they often experience. So I got researching, wondering which essential oil could help us out. Turns out Vetiver is a great oil to support our sleep. 

 

Here are your Vetiver essentials: 

Sourced from: Haiti 

Plant part: root

Extraction method: hydro diffusion 

 

Vetiver is a natural:
  • Antiseptic
  • Antispasmodic
  • Anthelmintic
  • Sedative
  • Immunostimulant

Tips for using Vetiver Essential Oil:
  • Aromatically Diffuse Vetiver Essential Oil or simply inhale a drop from cupped hands to bring a sense of clam and centeredness.
  • Topically Soak in a bath at the end of a stressful day adding a few drops of Vetiver Essential Oil to create a sense of peace and relaxation. Similarly you can massage into skin with a carrier oil to calm emotions. If you are experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety Vetiver Essential Oil can support you through this emotionally difficult times, by applying to the back of the neck or forehead. If you are lacking in focus or concentration or having difficultly sleeping this is a great oil for you. Simply apply under the nose or on the soles of your feet.
  • Internally Add a drop or 2 to a hot drink during winter time to promote immune-supporting properties.

And remember, a little goes a long way!
