Wild Vetiver (ruh khus) Essential Oil
Wild Vetiver Essential Oil (Ruh Khus) – Vetiver is an important oil in our work and so we are really excited to find this one that has been harvested in the Kannuaj area where it was distilled. Ruh Khus is the traditional name for the essential oil distilled from wild vetiver. It has a deeply earthy pulse with a slightly smoky note, which then leads into a smell of texture. The texture of embodiment, grounded reality and dried, cut wood.
Vetiver encourages us let go of using the intellect as our armor or castle. It invites us to really feel at home in our bodies and discover what it feels like to fully live and be present in our physical bodies. By building a solid, loving relationship with our physical bodies, we begin to feel more confident and centered. Our feelings, thoughts, emotions and interactions are anchored in our flesh and bones.
Please note that this is not an attar, since vetiver yields a lot of essential oil and the attar process is not required.
