Botanical Name : Chrysopogon Zizanioides

Country of Origin : Haïti

Olfactive Family : Woody

Harvester : KAM

Harvested part : Roots

Main application : Diffusion

Vetiver Essential Oil (Chrysopogon Zizanioides) is obtained by steam distillation of roots grown in The Cayes region in Haiti. It is sought after and renowned in perfumery for its particular scent with woody and earthy, fresh and vegetal notes.

The essential oil of Vetiver is recognized above all for its tonic properties (circulatory, arterial, venous but also lymphatic). Stimulating, it would be beneficial for the body and would strengthen the immune system. It is also known to be tranquilizing and relaxing. Two excellent reasons to spread its scent in your home.



From the outset, Vetiver essential oil presents itself in all its duality : a green, fresh and herbaceous note facing a woody, dense and unctuous precipice evoking hay and cocoa. The smoky note bursts forth, gushing and proud, harboring subtle facets of cashew. Persistent until the end, the reminder of earthy and country hay turns into a pipe tobacco more and more dry, like a trip to the Caribbean cigar.
