Description

Why should I add Vetiver essential oil to my collection? Vetiver contains multiple sesquiterpenes (complex organic compounds with a strong scent found in plants) including carvone, isovalencenol, and khusimol. These compounds give Vetiver essential oil a particularly grounding aroma, more so than any other root or plant essential oil, which make it exceptionally useful in an essential oil collection for both its aromatic and topical applications.
