Vetiveria Zizanoides (Vetiver) Root Oil


What is it? 

Vetiver oil is a yellow essential oil with a moderate woody-earthy aroma, derived from the roots of the vetiver plant (Chrysopogon zizanioides). 

Chrysopogon zizanioides, also known as Vetiveria zizanoides or Vetiver, is a bunchgrass native to India and cultivated in many tropical regions. The grass grows to around 1.5 meters tall, with a complex fibrous root system that reaches depths of up to 4 meters. The aromatic roots can be dried and steam-distilled to produce the fragrant essential oil, which is used in perfumes, cosmetics and personal care products. The oil is also reported to have some antimicrobial and antioxidant activities. 

The essential nutrients and natural ingredients present in vetiver oil make it a one-stop solution for all your hair woes. Blessed with anti-microbial properties, this oil improves blood circulation in the hair follicles, prevents various hair infections and also takes part in collagen formation. It is extremely useful for rejuvenating dull, lifeless hair. Regular use of the oil improves hair texture, adds shine and stimulates hair growth.
