Is your Vetiver thick? Many components play a part in the viscosity (thickness) of an oil. Thicker oils typically come from the resin or root of the tree. Some oils grow thicker and more potent as they age. Because essential oils are extracted from living plants that do not follow an exact chemical formula or an exact growing pattern, each batch of the same oil can vary as well.

If you’re having problems with your oils dropping from the bottle, here are some quick tips:

1. These droppers also work best when held horizontally (to the side) instead of vertically (upside down).
2. Warm the bottle by holding in hands, placing in a bowl of warm water (to prevent damaging the label put the bottle in a ziplock bag before placing in water)
3. Widen the holes on the orifice reducer with a sterile pin
4. Take the orifice reducer off of the bottle and use a pipette.

Excellent
Excellent oil and good with cedar wood for room spray. It’s an exceptionally viscous oil (unless it’s the cap on my bottle); it can take up to 2 minutes or more for a single drop to emerge. Marvelous woodsy scent.

Husband and Sleep approved
My husband heard this could improve his sleep quality by ‘quieting the mind chat’ as he fell asleep. It’s doing the trick and he loves the woodsy smell!

Obsessed with Vetiver
Vetiver is in my top 10 favorite oils and Rocky Mountains Vetiver did not disappoint. Love the quality and quick low cost or free shipping! I definitely recommend this oil, it's used daily in my home. Love diffusing with Frankincense & Lavender, best nights sleep for me. I diffuse with Ylang Ylang & Orange too.
Works great in my focus blend along side Frankincense & a few other oils.
I also put drops on the back of my neck, helps calm my thinking brain down at night. Must have in my medicine cabinet. I'm obsessed with the smell, it's actually from a grass. Buy it, try it, you will love it!

Vetiver oil, I love it!
love it ! This is the second bottle that I've ordered. This oil seems to stay with you longer than some of the others. I mix it with an unscented body lotion, and use it after my bath.

I have never been able to get a single drop to come out of the bottle, please tell me how I can get it to come out? I'd really like to use it!
A shopper on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Many components play a part in the viscosity (thickness) of an oil. Because essential oils come from a variety of plants (flowers, leaves, herbs, grasses, tree barks, etc.), they differ in viscosity, scent, and color. Thicker oils typically come from the resin or root of the tree or are extracted with the cold press method. Some oils grow thicker and more potent as they age.

If you’re having problems with your oils dropping from the bottle, here are some quick tips:

1. These droppers also work best when held horizontally (to the side) instead of vertically (upside down).
2. Warm the bottle by holding in hands, placing in a bowl of warm water (to prevent damaging the label put the bottle in a ziplock bag before placing in water)
3. Widen the holes on the orifice reducer with a sterile pin
4. Take the orifice reducer off of the bottle and use a pipette.
Are your oils Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils? Do you conduct heavy metal and microbrial testing on your oils?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not use the term CPTG as this is specific to different companies. All of our essential oils are 100% pure, natural, therapeutic and organically grown. They are GMO-Free, GC/MS and Pesticide tested. For more information on the testing we conduct, please visit our quality page and our new USDA Organics.

Love your Vetiver! Why do you not use a bottle with glass wand for ease of use? I just ordered a glass bottle and wand off ebay so I can enjoy this Vetiver which is impossible to get out of bottle ...and it is inconvenient to warm up the oil each time I want to use it.
Ash H on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We carry orifice reducing euro droppers that may help thicker oils to come out of the bottle. Unfortunately we don't carry glass wands at this time, however I will forward this information to upper management to be considered.
