ABOUT THE OIL
This viscous, brown essential oil is steam distilled from Vetiver grasses wild grown in Haiti. Called 'khus khus' and 'khas khas' in its native India, Vetiver is a deeply rooted, perennial tufted grass, with long, thin, rigid leaves extending up to 1.5 meters in height. It is botanically related to Lemongrass and Citronella The grass grows well in low-laying rich marshy soils and is commonly found framing riverbanks in India, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.
This Vetiver has herbaceous middle notes woven with deep, smoky, leathery and rich earth undertones. The aroma (as with Patchouli oil) becomes more complex and smooth with age. It blends well with: Clary Sage, Jasmine, Lavender, Patchouli, Rose, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang Oils.
Vetiver is known as the 'oil of tranquility' and is part of an ancient Ayurveda recipe used to alleviate thirst, heatstroke, fevers and headaches. It is also prepared as a tonic to strengthen the immune system, calm mental hyperactivity, and reducing inflammation and pain in joints.
