Energetic and Emotional Effect 

Grounding and security. Vetiver is an oil which keeps us in contact with earth and stabilizes our energies. It unites the energies of all the major chakras. Associated with the root chakra, vetiver is comforting and stabilizing. Associated with the plexus solar chakra, it acts as a barrier to prevent the accumulation of bad energies coming from other persons and protects against excessive sensitivity. Vetiver can be used in individual meditation to center energies or in group meditation to align energies of all the persons involved. Its balancing nature reminds us the connexion between the spiritual and physical Self.
