Vetivert simultaneously pacifies Pitta, through its refrigerant properties as well as Vata, through its grounding and calming properties. This makes it an ideal remedy for equalizing emotional imbalances due to irritation, anger, nervousness, stress and exhaustion. Vetivert can be considered a twak rasayana, especially for mature skin, as it softens and moisturizes as well as helps to correct dryness and scaling, fine lines and wrinkles. It is also considered to stimulate hair growth and makes a fine tonic for thinning and frazzled locks.
