Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Oil
Found in: Restorative Floral Bath / Nourishing Body Creme
Key benefits: Aromatherapeutic. Antioxidant.
Derived from: Vitiver grass.
This essential oil is derived from the roots of vetiver grass, which are aged and soaked in water. It has a smoky, earthy scent that’s been used for centuries in aromatherapy as a calming and grounding agent (in Sri Lanka and India, it’s known both as the “Oil of Tranquility” and the “Fragrance of the Soil”). For this reason, it’s frequently found in health and wellness formulas designed to reduce anxiety and stress. It’s also high in antioxidants, which help protect against the free radicals that damage skin and contribute to signs of aging.
