Upon buying a diffuser, I chose Vetiver as one of my purchases but had never experienced the aroma before. I admit I was taken back a little when I smelt this from the bottle as to me, it has quite a liqueur aroma but oh my goodness, when I put this into the diffuser it is absolutely gorgeous. I made a blend with 4 drops each of Lavender and Vetiver with 2 drops of Frankincense, such a relaxing, grounding and almost woody in a way. This is a must have in my opinion and every blend I have made using Vetiver has put a smile on my face
I’ve had 5 friends that have struggled with sleep for years till I handed them a bottle of vetiver. They have all commented on how well it has worked for them and hence I’ve ordered more bottles. It has a thick consistency but you only need 1-2 drops on your pillow. I would highly recommend this essential oil for sleep issues.
Vetiver is a thick 'oil' and needs some attention in getting it out of the bottle, esp in cool / cold temperatures. It's a pity that you didn't try taking the dropper cap off. Gawd knows why you chucked it all away. It's a multi-useful and effective product. With the top on, tip the bottle upside down for a second or two. Then hold upright, prise off the plastic dropper cap and, using the dropper tube, dispense a drop onto skin / into skin cream / moisturiser, etc. Repeat as seen fit. Lovely job. Lovely aroma. Superb effect on one's mind, nerves, ego, etc. One of the best essential oils (along with Patchouli) for cheering oneself up.
This is a lovely fresh earthy smelling oil but its so thick that its impossible to get it to drop out of the dropper - I gave up on it in the end and threw it away.
