Vetiver--Can't go wrong with NYR

I usually don't write reviews, but I really want to support NYR, and this essential oil so people buy it and they keep making it! I've tried many different vetiver essential oils and there is just no comparison to the quality of this one. The smell is, as others have aptly described here, deeply earthy, woody, and smoked. I use it alone mixed with a bit of olive oil so I can put it on my skin. But, I'm looking forward to mixing it with their other essential oils.

Heavenly Scent

Vetiver is one of my staple oils. I wear it with either geranium for a chilled lift or frankincense to calm & nurture. It's rich texture and sweet resinous odour are deeply relaxing & homely.

Vetiver Organic Essential Oil

I have been using this in my diffuser and have created a massage oil with it. I find it to be deep, earthy and ****, and I love to smell it on my boyfriend’s skin after giving him a massage. The bottle is going down fairly quickly as I’m enjoying it so much! I’m also using it to help me relax at bedtime and find it works well in a piece of cotton wool, as it is dark and viscous, you wouldn’t want it getting in your bedsheets or clothes. It mixes beautifully with lavender too. I’ll be back for more when my bottle runs out


Possibly one of my favourite essential oils. Rich, earthy and grounding. Blends well with many other EO’s too!

Vetiver organic essential oil

I bought Vetiver after realising it is often used with other oils in sleep sprays I like. The viscosity is marvellous and the aroma does not disappoint. Even though I like it on its own,I am enjoying experimenting by adding different oils.Very happy with this product.

Beautiful fragrance

Purchased this beautifully scented essential oil to kix with lavender and vetiver for anxiety works a treat

A heavenly smell

This essential oil is heavenly. It has a woody, almost warm smoked smell to it. I use a tiny amount in my oil burner and it creates a really relaxing environment and makes my house smell gorgeous.
