Handmade Organic Vetiver Mat Outdoor - but what exactly is vetiver?

Vetiver is not (yet) so well known in our country. Our handmade Organic Vetiver Mat Outdoor consists on the one hand of 100 % organic cotton. On the other hand it is made of Vetiver, a sweet wood grass found in Asia. You have to think of this sweetgum grass as a bush. It can grow up to 1.80 m high. However, it also grows downward, deep into the earth. So it can help to counteract the erosion of the earth. However, vetiver is mostly grown in Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil, China and India for perfume production. Vetiver exudes an earthy, woody scent reminiscent of caramel. In addition, vetiver has the property to bind other fragrances. Thus, more quickly volatilizing fragrances remain longer present. In addition to its use as a fragrance, vetiver is often used in India to make wickerwork.

Mode of action Physical, which vetiver is said to be a medicinal plant:

The scent has a grounding effect, but also soothing and sometimes eroticizing. In combination of vetiver oil with jojoba oil, the tightening of the connective tissue is promoted. For example, after pregnancy. However, if vetiver oil is combined with rose oil, it is considered an anti-aging miracle cure. Thereby, vetiver oil can also lead to an improvement of the skin's appearance in case of acne. Vetiver is also said to positively influence the hormone balance and thus be helpful for problems during menopause.

supposed mode of action of vetiver as a medicinal plant on our psyche:

On the physical level, it is said to help achieve greater balance and self-confidence. There have been several tests in the U.S. to prove the calming effect of vetiver in people with aggression problems. Due to its earthy, leathery, woody scent, it conveys calmness and strength. Perceived through the air as a fragrance, vetiver is said to calm and lower aggression. Furthermore, it can help restore one's self-awareness.

Our handmade Organic Vetiver Mat Outdoor can thus positively influence your connection to Mother Earth and the feeling of grounding during your yoga practice.

Outdoor mat because: 

By the way, our Handmade Organic Vetiver Mat is an outdoor only mat. Indoor use is less advisable, as vetiver is a natural dried grass that collects dust. By the way, it also makes an excellent picnic blanket.

our handmade Organic Vetiver Mat Outdoor and the environmental factor:

Due to the increasing popularity of yoga for years, this should actually benefit our environment. Basically, however, unfortunately the opposite is the case. Often, the yoga mats only add to the environmental pollution. After all, many mats are made of PVC. Especially PVC is considered one of the most toxic plastics ever. And therefore consciously try to make this world a LITTLE better. Our Organic Vetiver Yoga Mat handmade is 100% biodegradable and eventually dissolves.
