Vetiver Essential Oil - Savitur Botanicals
Savitur Botanicals' steam distilled fine quality Vetiver has a deeper more earthy, woody and grassy scent and a lot less goes much farther than a hydro distillation.
For the overactive mind, Vetiver is relaxing and is well suited for one who constantly strives for perfection. Vetiver helps bring about a sense of ease, letting the mind just be.
Like Sandalwood, Patchouli, and Frankincense, the earthy tones of Vetiver’s fragrance improve with age. Vetiver is considered to be a strong base note. Base notes take more than 12 hours to evaporate, where top notes evaporate in less than 2 hours. When mixed with other essential oils, Vetiver helps the other oils to “stick around” (literally) keeping the other, more volatile essential oils (top notes), “fixed” to the skin.
Vetiver is grown for 3 years before it can be harvested and distilled for its essential oil. One must harvest the roots of the vetiver grass, pulling them out of the ground, shaking and cutting the roots off with a machete. This is hard labor done by hand with no tractors or machines for help.
Savitur sources their organic Vetiver from a sustainable farm in Madagascar.
