This is from Emily Wright: The Les Cayes area (vetiver region) is under much water. Many people have asked about our vetiver producers and harvesters in Haiti. Our producers are safe and are checking on the safety of all those who harvest the vetiver root in our behalf. Our partnership distillery has been significantly damaged as you can see from these photos. Georges and Marcel expect the distillery to be operational again in six to eight weeks, which is amazing. The Les Cayes area is under much water and has experienced great loss. The Haitian people have been through so much. Let us keep them in our prayers as well as all of our friends who are in the path of Hurricane Mathew. Please stay safe!
To learn more about our relationship with Haiti:
The dōTERRA Co-impact Sourcing initiative and Healing Hands foundation works with newly formed cooperatives in Haiti to bring the vetiver harvesters steady income, clean water, and desired education. Through dōTERRA, Vetiver essential oil helps these villagers on their way to a better life and hope for the future.
In sourcing doTERRA Vetiver, the profound impact of co-impact sourcing and fostering self-reliance is abundantly clear.
Vetiver is fabulous for stopping the mental chatter and bringing on the calm!
Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of Vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilization. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. It can also be rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. When taken internally, Vetiver can support a heathy immune system.*
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
