The essential oil “Vetiver Bourbon Matured”, stored for more than 30 years, exudes a beguiling, deep aroma to earth, wood, tobacco and caramel. This unique fragrance rarity matured for more than 30 years in the PRIMAVERA mature cellar. Due to the long maturation period, a particularly dark, heavy, honey-like-tough essential oil developed, which is ideal as a refined base note for own perfume creations and as a fixative.
Vetiver Bourbon matured
The essential oil originally comes from the island of Reunion and was extracted there from dried roots. The roots of the rather inconspicuous Vetivergrass reach up to 3 meters into the depth and protect the landscape from soil erosion, from which its earthing effect can be derived.
Aromatherapeutic, Vetiver Bourbon has a highly centering, earthing and relaxing effect due to its high proportion of sesquiterpene compounds (45 – 50 vetiven). In stormy times there is support, serenity and self-confidence, so it can be a valuable help in times of upheaval. Women and men alike appreciate the stress-relieving effect and like to use it in sensual massage oils. Its skin-friendly, soothing and regenerating properties, it develops as a valuable base note in various skin care formulations, such as skin protection balms and facial care oils.
The scent of the essential oil Vetiver Bourbon matured mixes well with sandalwood, orange, ylang ylang extra, jasmine absolue, tonka extract and cardamom.
Cosmetic for aroma care. Max. Mix 5 drops with 50 ml almond oil* organic.
