VETIVERT Vetiveria zizanioides
Parts Used: Root
Vetivert is considered a calming, strengthening, and uplifting remedy. It has traditionally been used to reduce fevers, heatstroke, and inflammatory skin conditions, and has long been valued for dry, undernourished skin, aging skin, and wounds.
Its powers emanate from the balancing polarity of its cooling and warming properties. Skin disorders are almost always manifestations of internal disorders and often involve the liver. Vetivert exerts cooling, clearing, anti-inflammatory action upon the skin while simultaneously exerting targeted, moist warmth upon the metabolic-limb system, of which the liver is the central organ. It aids in moving the lymph and helping blood flow more efficiently to the skin.
Vetivert is an also woman’s remedy. It supports the growth and absorption power of body cells and promotes the feminine characteristics of the skin. Replenishing her juices and restoring her inherent feminine lushness, it acts directly as a general emotional and physical restorative.
On a spiritual level, Vetivert is thought to be grounding, strengthening the aural self-shield and aiding in finding one’s purpose in life. Elements: Earth, Fluid Organization, Spirit Body.
