Vetiver Hydrosol

Vetiver Hydrosol smells much more like a diluted version of its corresponding essential oil than a number of other hydrosols. It is woody, smoky, earthy, herbaceous and spicy.

Botanical Name: Vetiveria zizanoides

Aromatic Strength: Medium

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Not much is reported about the potential uses for Vetiver Hydrosol, but I personally find it remarkably grounding and calming. It can be considered masculine, and its woody, smoky aroma lends itself well to formulations for men. Len and Shirley Price report that the Vetiver Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 19% eucalyptol, 31-33% alcohols, 34-35% ketones and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antiviral, bactericidal, calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, digestive, expectorant, lipolytic, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 114.]

Safety Information: Read AromaWeb's Hydrosol Safety Guidelines.
