Vintage Haiti Vetiver


SKUN/A Category

Vetiver oil is an essential oil renowned for its grounding, calming and stabilising properties. It has a natural cooling affect and is a great oil to use when meditating

Also referred to askhus oil, vetiver oil is made from a perennial grass that’s native to India. Part of the Poaceae plant family, vetiver grass (Chrysopogon zizanioides) can grow up to 1.5 metres tall and has tall stems and long, thin, rigid leaves and purple/brown flowers.

It also happens to be related to other fragrant grasses, namely lemongrass and citronella. The name vetiver, Vetiveria Zizanioides in full, means ‘hatcheted’ up in the parts of India where it’s native to.

The plant is indigenous to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. It can also be found in many other tropical regions, including Brazil, Jamaica, Africa, Indonesia, Japan and Australia.

This aged oil has a light brown hue with a light syrupy texture, some would confuse this for a fine Meroke or Indonesian Oud, it is a fine perfume in itself! When applied you are greeted with a crystal clean deep earthy note, like the aroma of fresh rain hitting dry earth theres a woody resinous tone with a unique sweet greeness. This oil is a sheer joy and has a vast array of notes with a great soothing and relaxing aura to it. Perfect to swipe just before you go out, pray, meditate or it the bed.
