Vetiver essential oil

So rare to find organic Vetiver essential oil. I added it to my moisturiser to boost the hydration levels in my sensitive skin. I think it has also improved my ability to be attentive throughout the day. Love the smell!

Excellent oil

Very pleased with this - earthy and punchy, it provides a deep base note. Extremely thick though - you have to wait for each drop!

Neil's Yard Vetivert is the Best!

I have tried a few different brands and this one is the best. Natural with a beautiful strong earthy aroma. I love to use Vetiver essential oil blended with almond oil as one of my self massage oils and its great.
