The rootlets of Vetiver have been used for their fragrance since antiquity. The parent plant is a grass, a tall perennial which originates in India. The grass grows wild in India. It also serves as a soil protecting plant since its abundant lacework of rootlets will secure the soil on mountainous slopes against excessive erosion during the torrential tropical rains.

Vetiver Oil is steamed distilled from the cleaned and washed rootlets which are dried, cut and chopped, then usually soaked in water prior to distillation. Most of the Indian Vetiver Oil is absorbed by this countries local soap and perfume industries.

This oil is amber colored to grayish brown, olive brown or dark brown viscous liquid whose odor is sweet and very heavy woody earthy, reminiscent of roots and wet soil, with a rich undertone of 'precious wood' notes.

This oil has a deep, smoky and earthy fragrance. Like the oils of patchouli and sandalwood, vetivert oil is a base note that is used as a valuable fixative in perfumes. Because of its potency it is best used in no more than one drop per 25ml of carrier oil.

Vetiver, like patchouli, is a very interesting and earthy oil. Some people can barely tolerate the smell while others are affected quite deeply by its aroma, which can be compared to the smell of a damp forest floor.

Vetiver is often referred to as the 'oil of tranquility' and may be used as a protection against sensitivity. The oil may be applied to the solar plexus to prevent becoming a 'psychic sponge'.
