VETIVERT 100% PURE & NATURAL ESSENTIAL OIL
Vetiver (VETIVERT) essential oil is derived from the complex white root system of a grass used in India and Sri Lanka for the creation of woven matting.
SCENT:Vetiver has an earthy, woody scent characteristic of most essential oils derived from roots in the earth. It also has a Rich, sweetly satisfying note that is both warm and masculine.
Vetiver oil is obtained from Vetiveria zizanoides L., a grass that can be found in both tropical and subtropical parts of the world. The roots of this grass yield an essential oil on steam distillation. The complicated odor profile of vetiver oil is dominated by a woody balsamic tonality of a very special kind. Qualities of vetiver oil that are mainly used in perfumery originate from Java, India, the Reunion Island, Seychelles, and in recent times Haiti, Angola, Brazil and Japan have become sources for this product.
