This is a lively but reassuring oil. The scent is so compelling, I use it regularly for the laundry and in a diffuser.

Lovely thanks

Vetivert aromatherapy

I just love this smell. I use it in bags over porridge for room, draw, wardrobe and car odour management. Synthetic options are expensive mistakes!

Vetiver essential oil review

This is a strong and musky essential oil, which I use to blend into massage oils. As such I use 4 or 5 drops to add to a 100ml blend. Vetiver essential oil has a strong, woody and oud like smell.
