This lovely organic soap is made from the roots of Vetiver. I googled it and I found these health and beauty benefits. Now I should not be surprised why I am very satisfied with this newfound soap.
Aromatherapy (Umesh Lavania): Vetiver oil owes several beauty benefits and emotional effects. It balances the activity of the sebaceous oil glands, has deodorizing properties, and helps normalize oily skin and clear acne. It replenishes moisture in dry and dehydrated skin and has a rejuvenation effect on mature skin, as well as cuts / wounds / irritated and inflamed skin. When used regularly during pregnancy, vetiver oil reportedly prevents stretch marks. The oil strengthens the central nervous system, and is helpful in overcoming depression, insomnia, anxiety, stress, tension and nervousness (Wilson, 1995). When locally applied in rheumatism, lumbago, headache, sprain, it is a relieving embrocation. Infusion of roots is a refreshing drink in fever, inflammation and irritability of the stomach. Some people use vetiver oil as aphrodisiac (Wilson, 1995).
