Product Description

Vetiver Essential Oil

Description & Extraction:

It is a tall, tufted, perennial, scented grass with long narrow leaves and an abundant complex lacework of underground white roots and is mainly cultivated in the tropics, such as India, Tahiti, Java and Haiti. The grass was used in Calcutta and Haiti for thatching and awnings, blinds and sunshades, while in Java the roots were used for weaving mats and thatching huts, which not only gave rooms an exquisite fragrance but also deterred insects. Vetiver oil is also known as the 'oil of tranquility' because of its calming properties. It has an earthy, musty smell - much like the smell of a damp forest floor and is amber to olive in color. It is extracted from the washed, chopped, dried and soaked roots and rootlets by steam distillation and yields about 0.5%.
