Vetiver oil is EXCELLENT for dry skin and outbreaks. I\'ve had chronically dry hands for somewhere around ten years now, and this is the ONLY thing that has worked so well. My dry skin began around puberty, but seems to mostly be a reaction to soap, as washing my hands more often exacerbates it (soap doesn\'t matter, as I\'ve tried everything from Softsoap moisturizing soap to Nutribiotic\'s sensitive skin non-soap cleanser; the Nutribiotic does less damage, but doesn\'t allow the skin to completely heal). Aloe vera gel is also helpful, to a degree, but nothing beats vetiver.

I applied several drops of undiluted vetiver oil for just about an hour one evening before I had to wash my hands again (I know you\'re supposed to dilute essential oils, but this one doesn\'t cause any sort of irritation on me). The next morning, despite no longer having the oil on my hands, the skin had changed from red and inflamed to mildly pink. Within a week, the deep cracks that had split open on my knuckles had healed over, and in two weeks were gone completely. A mild pinkness still remained in the skin, but was much less than I had seen in years.

I tried not using as much vetiver for a few days, and the rash on my hands came back, only different. It now itched and resembled poison ivy, though I hadn\'t touched an ivy plant and it was only in the places the dry skin had been before (that is to say, only from the wrists to the knuckles, not on the palms or fingers). I applied vetiver to this as well, and this rash also cleared up overnight, so I\'m quite sure it wasn\'t some delayed allergic reaction to the vetiver.

Highly recommended to ANYONE with skin issues. 3-5 drops per hand is all that is needed; you can work out a similar ratio for other areas of the skin. Leaves a silky oiled feeling (very soothing when your skin has become so dry and inflamed it limits movement just like joint arthritis), and, from what I can smell (I have hyponosmia), it\'s lovely. Reminds me of warm, dry grass on an evening in the fall or late summer.
