This Vetiver Oil is distilled from the roots of a grass that grows in the hills of Southwestern Haiti. Beyond its economic value, which is sufficient to support thousands of families on the island, Vetiver’s strong roots aid in preventing soil erosion on the island, preserving it for lucrative agricultural use.
In fine fragrance, Vetiver’s dark, earthy aroma is an irreplaceable part of perfume base notes going back to the beginnings of modern perfumery. Vetiver Oil Haitian is an excellent addition to woody or oriental fragrances.
