Adds a hint of smoke to any blend and anchors (fixative) the blend. A little goes a long way. Deep, earthy, relaxing... the oil of tranquility. Like patchouli, this is usually an oil you either love or dislike. This is a viscous oil and need to be warmed slightly to pour.

Hi Monica. Leave it in s little warm water to loosen it up. Vetiver is an acquired taste not withstanding, it is great in blends where a smoky note is desired. With the cold weather around the corner, people will be stocking their fires for warmth and the lovely smokey aroma in the room. Try defusing it with sweet orange 5 SO to to 2 V ratio in a diffuser.
Great strong woody scent, not too thick, I love it!
All the essential oils and other supplies I order to make shower steamers are great! Arrived promptly too.
