Vetiver, AKA Chrysopogon zizanioides, is one of the most soothing scents out there. With its smooth, musky, and earthy smell, vetiver is an oil that calms skin and is also anti-inflammatory. A word a lot of people use to describe vetiver is sedative, due to its calming attributes. When people think about smelling earthy tones in general, most immediately feel at ease and relaxed, it’s a psychological effect vetiver has inherently created.



Vetiver is a grass unlike most grasses- it's roots grow downward. Vetiver comes from India, but can be produced from all over the world. It was first made to prevent erosion and stabilize soil, and now is also being used for skin and hair, and health benefits.
