Vetiver (Vetiveria zizaniodes) is a tall grass plant with strong, expansive roots that establish a solid, intricate connection with the earth. The roots are the source of the botanical's similarly anchoring essential oil.
Aura Cacia Organic Vetiver Essential Oil is distilled from carefully dug, washed and dried roots in Madagascar.
What's the difference between organic vetiver essential oil and conventional vetiver essential oil? Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA's Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Product Features:• Vetiver's aroma is sweet, heavy and fragrant, like moist soil. Its earthy, peaceful oil evokes a sense of connectivity and quiet, which is why it is widely used in colognes, perfumes and personal care products for men and women.
• Aromatically, vetiver has powerful, fixative properties. When blended with other oils, it unites a collective aroma, making a scent last longer and smell more consistent throughout evaporation.
• Vetiver anchors any grounding essential oil experience, making it desirable for use after work or school, and especially in diffusions before bedtime.
• Vetiver blends well with many other essential oils, including sandalwood, lavender, lavandin, jasmine, geranium, rose, patchouli, clary sage, ylang ylang, melissa (lemon balm), cassia and bergamot.
• Vetiver essential oil is generally considered a base note.

I received this product and it was thick like molasses with a compromised quality. Can't use it in my oil diffuser.
It is very thick so it will last a lot longer & the scent is soooo good! Love it! This is my go-to brand from now on due to this & 2 others Ive purchased being such better quality than others Ive bought.
vetiver product smells rotten. I bought one of these in store and it smells wonderful but the item from amazon smells rancid maybe it got to hot in the warehouse :(
It's unfortunate when you receive a product and it smells 'Nasty'!!! Especially when this was the second bottle of Vetiver I ordered from this company. The first bottle smelled 'Amazing' so I ordered a second bottle. It smells terrible!!! The company obviously doesn't guaranty their product and will not pay for return shipping. I won't order from this company again!!!
This IS Vetiver oil. It's gooey, thick. You have to take the stopper out and get a disposable or washable dropper to dispense it, which is how it should be. If your vetiver flows out, it's been cut with another oil and you should be wary.
