Very useful
Have been diffusing it with lavender for my son with insomnia and depression, and also to help calm my younger special needs son. I think it helps both of them in their own way. I diffuse bergamot during the day and Vetiver and lavender at night. I like the RMO quality of Vetiver. It is a much thicker oil and therefore somewhat challenging to dispense, but worth the patience in the end.

Thick is good! My sleep recipe
Perhaps a comment in RMO description would help those who are not prepared to wait for that thick golden drop. An option (other than to pop the drip cap and use an eye dropper, or warm the bottle which I don't want to do) is to make a 5ml blend of 3 oils. The other 2 oils will dilute the Vetiver and it will drip out just fine. For instance, a sleep aid mixture next to your bedside diffuser could be: 1 part Vetiver (it's potent) to 2 parts each of Lavender and Bergamot. Add 2 drops of the blend to the diffuser and add one drop of Roman Chamomile or Red Mandarin. I mix and match each night, sometimes using the other oils right from their bottles and omit the Vetiver. Nighty night.

Smells awesome! It's woodsy and smells great when mixed with cedarwood. Reminds me of hiking in the mountains. Very happy with all of my purchases from Rocky Mountain Oils.

Love the oil but not the dropper
I love the earthy scent of vetiver. It is SUPER thick and doesn't come out of the bottle. I bought different dropper tops to try. I wish the bottles just had them to begin with. I have to make sure the bottle is nice and warm to dispense any oil.

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.
