VETIVER, HAITIAN ESSENTIAL OIL | Pure Plant Extract
Pure Vetiveria zizanioides hydrodiffused essential oil from Haiti.
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.
It is traditionally used in perfume as a fixative, and in aromatherapy for its grounding, cooling and nourishing properties.
This is the most pleasant-smelling & softest Vetiver that is available.
Characteristics: woody, earthy, herbaceous and spicy
Subsidiary notes and nuances: smoky

Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
