Vetiver (also known as khus khus) is an essential oil that supposedly increases red blood cell production. That's according to everything I can find on it in the essential oil/aromatherapy readings, but I cannot find any good research studies on it.

It's also got some other reported benefits that seem useful, but again no good data supporting any of the claims.

Anybody know of a good reliable resource for info on these type of things?

got the same results jb. Many of the sites on aromatherapy or essential oils claim increased red blood cell production but haven't been able to find any reliable sources proving or disproving it

you would think htat if in fact it did increase rbc there would be at least one study among the hundreds on it.

that's a very good point. Maybe i'll do a test on this since i've got a steady schedule that shouldn't cause any fluctuations in crit.

So i'll combine all my baseline tests i've had over the last year and then check rbc levels.
I suppose after a while i could also check ferritin and hb.
