Is Vetiver essential oil thick?
  • Resins, roots, and absolutes tend to produce oil with a larger molecular structure. This makes them less volatile and hence, more aromatic over longer periods of time due to slow evaporation. It also means they are a little more difficult to work with. To use thicker oils like Vetiver, roll the bottle between your palms at an upside-down angle until adequately warmed. Alternatively, remove the euro dropper, and use disposable pipettes to get the appropriate amount of drops.
