Vétiver – Essential oil 


Format: 5 ml 

Certified pure  

Origin: Haïti 


A real star, this famous Vetiver with its sensual, warm and enveloping fragrance! Very appreciated in perfumery, also in aromatherapy, among others, for its well-being, calming and tranquilizing effect. This oil is obtained by steam distillation of the roots.1  

A study conducted in 2005 at the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Clemson University in South Carolina aimed to evaluate the antioxidant activity of vetiver oil in 2005.2 The results showed that vetiver oil had strong free radical scavenging activity compared to standard antioxidants such as BHA and alpha tocopherol.  

What a joy to be anchored by its precious and coveted roots, not to mention that its richness in antioxidants makes it a great ally in achieving healthy and glowing skin.
