A native of the Far East, vetiver comes from a Tamil word meaning “hatcheted up,” which is a description of how the roots are collected. The plant is a tall grass, but it’s the root that is valued for its long-lasting, woody scent and medicinal properties. Vetiver is believed to provide safety (and financial resources), and rituals involving the root are said to seal off the body from negative energy. The plant is also important in nature. The deep roots help stabilize land and provide life-giving nutrients to even the most barren soils.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.
