Vetiver Essential Oil Uses, Benefits & Recipes

Vetiver is a very sticky oil as it comes from a tree and just as trees are grounded and rooted, Vetiver also helps us feel grounded and rooted in our lives.

It roots the split or scattered person by affecting the Amygdala gland, so it is best to for the person suffering with these issues to not only put the oil on, but to smell it as much as possible.

This Amygdala gland in your brain is ONLY accessed by scent. It is the part of our body that holds emotional grief.

It works somewhat like this. You smell fresh baked cookies and you automatically find yourself thinking of your grandma who used to make you cookies all the time as a child. Or when you smell that fresh Christmas tree, it jogs your memory of that one amazing Christmas you'll never forget.

By smelling this oil, it will help you or your loved one feel much more calm and relaxed, not scattered or split. It deals with stress at the core level of your being. It is a great oil to rub on your brow bone. Keeping it near your face and put onto your head will affect your brain and help you to keep smelling that wonderful and healing scent all through out your day.
