Essential Oils Coming to Vetiver

Posted on October 20, 2012 by admin

Oh yes- essential oils at Vetiver Aromatics! After much research and product-testing from various sources, we are ready to start launching our own essential oil offerings, right here on the website!

Since winter is fast approaching, we have decided to start with a set of essential oils that are particularly suited to the chilly weather. The first offering: Fresh Ginger Root Essential Oil.  Ginger essential oil is often used to ease nausea. It is also an excellent addition to blends used for massage, as it can ease muscle aches, arthritis pain, and improve circulation. If you have a cold or the flu, ginger makes a great addition to an all-natural chest rub. Its warming properties can be very soothing.

Also coming soon:

  • pine oil from Bulgaria
  • peppermint oil from the United States
  • lavender oil from France
  • rosemary oil from Morocco
  • eucalyptus oil from Australia
  • and a lovely Christmas EO blend!

Yippee! And you know what else is special about these oils? They are ALL useful during cold and flu season. Each of these essential oils provides aromatherapeutic properties that are specific to helping those down with sniffles, runny noses, aches and pains, congestion, and all that fun stuff. Soon we will offer a complete winter health arsenal. And a Cold and Flu kit, as well! Just in time for the holidays.

Mother and Daughter Perfume Party

Posted on August 04, 2011 by aandriot

My daughter and I spent the afternoon sitting around a table covered end-to-end with vials of scents, graduated cylinders, pipettes, tester strips, and various other sundries.

Oh yes - we were mixing ourselves up some fragrances. Jillian likes to call it mixing potions.

We're both working on our debut artisan lines. Jillian's line is fairy-inspired: Fairy Berry, Fairy Bog, Watermelon Ice, and Chocolate Mimosa. They smell delicious, and very kid-friendly!

Mine is a Camelot line: each scent is inspired by some aspect of Arthurian legend. So far, I'm working on Lady of the Lake, Morgan le Fay, Excalibur, and Pendragon. Their scents are a little more grown up, slightly darker, with a bit of a vintage edge.

Soulful Perfumery

Posted on June 20, 2011 by Angie Andriot

In this Age of Stuff, people are inundated with ceaseless displays of junk. Increasingly more items are mass-produced overseas, and then shipped to generic Big Box Stores where even cashiers are being replaced by machines. Is it any wonder many customers are beginning to feel undervalued? We need to put the heart and soul back into consumerism. We need to reconnect people with their products by engaging them with the production process. There was a time when artists, craftspeople, and independent business owners fulfilled our primary shopping needs. When we talked to the people who made our stuff. When we knew their names, and they knew ours. Let’s reignite that past.
