Benefits of Vetiver, The Ayurvedic Herb

Mahi has a thing for body scrubs. She was a big fan of woody aromatic scrubs. Her grandmother recently told her about Vetiver. A plant, an ingredient, and a physical scrub all rolled into one. Vetiver, also known as Khus, is a fragrant, tall grass native to India that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. She began utilizing this herb as a natural alternative to chemical exfoliants.

The roots of the vetiver plant are more essential than the grass. The best method to utilize them is to put them in an earthen pot with clean drinking water and set the vetiver roots within. Cover and soak the roots in water for a few hours. Drink up after straining. 

Not only is vetiver root water highly cooling to the system, lowering body heat, but it is also an excellent natural antioxidant and alkaliser. It not only reduces inflammation and relaxes the body, but it also calms the mind and balances bad emotions. Mahi performed this daily and was pleased to notice that her skin was becoming healthier and shinier, and her digestive system was returning to normal.

The essential oils produced from vetiver roots are another method to utilize them. This contains antibacterial properties and may be used to cleanse, nourish, and cure skin and hair. Other health advantages of vetiver roots include weaving mats from the root fiber; resting on these mats can help calm the body down while also increasing oxygen levels.

Vetiver is available on our website in scrubs and powder form, order now to enjoy the amazing benefits of this Ayurvedic herb.
