What is it? 

Vetiver essential oil is derived from the vetiver plant, a type of grass native to India. Vetiver is in the same class as the essential oil citronella.  

 

How can I use it? 

Research has shown that vetiver essential oil is toxic to ticks and when used safely with carrier oil and applied topically it may be effective in preventing tick bites and prevent serious tick bite associated conditions such as Lyme disease.  

 

What are the benefits? 

Vetiver oil is effective as an aromatherapy agent. That means it’s safe to inhale when it’s been distilled and released as a vapor. Using an aromatherapy diffuser to inhale the scent of pure vetiver oil is one way to use it for health benefits. Vetiver oil has quite a few properties that make it a promising ingredient for aromatherapy.

 

What are the risks?  

Never start any holistic modality without first contacting your physician to discuss the risks and benefits. Avoid getting vetiver in eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
