Words by Mikaël

Originally from India and Indonesia, Vetiver, Vetiveria zizanioides, a name borrowed from Tamil vettiveru, is part of the Poaceae family.

A plant with long and narrow leaves, it grows in the form of large green tufts, whose roots, growing vertically, can reach depths of up to three meters.

Because of its roots this unique plant is very useful in protecting soil from erosion and to control water runoff.

Farmers in southern India and Nigeria plant it to delineate their plots and prevent soil erosion.

Vetiver hedges also allow soils to retain moisture, stabilize dikes, rehabilitate wastelands and can even prevent pollution of natural resources.

This brown-orange oil with an aromatic, green, earthy smell, sometimes slightly smoky, recalls the undergrowth.

Warm and comforting, the essential oil of Vetiver is wonderful to fight against stress and promote relaxation.

In perfumery, it belongs to the woody olfactory family and is more often used in perfumes with a masculine character.

Words by Anny Schneider

This organic essential oil, extracted from the roots of this Vetiver, is known for its relaxing and soothing properties.

It helps to take root and is very useful in dissipating insomnia and alleviating episodes of stress.

Venous, lymphatic and hepato-pancreatic tonic, its action on the immune system is also interesting.

Its rich and suave aroma (woody, musky and earthy) makes it an important raw material in perfumery, as a base note or fixer.

Its texture being sticky or even syrupy, it flows very difficultly through the codigoutte.

We therefore recommend a dropper or otherwise dilute it in vegetable oil before using it, even as a perfume.

Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
