Vetiver's unique and appealing scent makes it a common ingredient in many perfumes and colognes. When used topically or aromatically, it can have a grounding effect on emotions making it popular for massages and meditative practices. When taken internally, Vetiver can support a healthy immune system.*

doTERRA's Vetiver Essential Oil is sourced in Haiti. The vetiver plant was actually introduced to the island by French perfume makers. Much of the land where it grows has been affected by erosion and deforestation resulting in poor quality soil. Fortunately, vetiver is is a tenacious plant that grows in difficult environments. One factor that makes it viable, is its dense, extensive root system. While the roots enable it to survive they also make for a very labor intensive harvesting process. Watch the following video to learn more about the harvesting process and how doTERRA has been able to add  to the community through Co-Impact Sourcing.
