Vetiver, Haitian - Hydrodiffused Pure Essential Oil


Vetiver (Chrysopogon or Vetiveria zizanioides), also known as vetivert, khus, or khus khus, is a perennial bunchgrass of the Poaceae family, native to India. The grass has been used for hundreds of years for a wide variety of purposes, including perfumery. Vetiver processing was introduced to Haiti in the 1940s, and the oil from Haitian vetiver is highly sought after. 

The oil is very thick, and golden/dark brown, with an aroma that is deep, heavy, slightly sweet and resinous, with pronounced woody, earthy, root-like notes and light smoky undertones. 

This is the most pleasant-smelling & softest Vetiver we can find.

It is traditionally used in perfume as a fixative, and in aromatherapy for its grounding, cooling and nourishing properties.
