    meaning fragrant root. In Aryuvedic medicine this plant is known to posses the abilities to cool a fever, heatstroke and
    ease headaches. There are also references to this aromatic grass in Sanskrit texts for ceremonial purposes.
            Gabriel Mojay associates the essential oil of Vetyver with the Water element that the kidneys are ruled by. 
    This makes a lot of sense as the kidneys correspond with fear, the roots add the power of courage to face any situations
    with a better disposition. With that Yin energy the feminine reproductive system is fortified easing menstrual  and and 
    menopausal systems. As a glandular tonic it helps to balance estrogen and progesterone.

            Years ago, at the beginning of my Nature’s Spirit journey  I almost always anointed my hair with a mixture of YlangYlang 
    extra superior along with a dab of Vetyver. In reflection I suppose I needed to keep my self stable on this Earth as I allowed 
    my Spirit to be elevated as and resonate on that plane.I have  added Bulgarian Rose along with Frankincense sacra with  
    Vetyver to anoint my hair as I embarked into the land of dreams. Mnmmmm,…….very soothing to the Soul. Vetyver will speak
     to those who want to be safely grounded and stabilize their energies to walk upon this Earth with reverence and respect to 
    the land we live upon. It helps to relieve an overstressed mind. This is a sedating nervine tonic that will ease insomnia.
