Vetiver essential oil can be used in summers to cool down your body and regain the regular body temperature. Besides, the vetiver oil also helps the body naturally avoid heat strokes. The easiest way to get this done is to add about 10 drops of the oil to a tepid bath and soak in it for a maximum of 30 and minimum of 15 minutes. It should be known that a tepid bath is one in which the body is not immersed but wiped with a wet cloth or sponge primarily to reduce body temperature. An alternate method of attaining the same results would be to soak a cloth in vetiver oil water and let the soaked cloth sit on your forehead for some time. Vetiver aromatherapy can be of use too.
