Vetiver, Organically Grown: Haiti (Vetiveria zizanioides)
Vetiver is traditionally known as the “Oil of Tranquility” because of the calming effects on the body. It is a perennial grass that is related to Citronella and Palmarosa. The grasses thrive in the tropics and because of their intense root system, are largely cultivated to protect against soil erosion. The essential oil is extracted by the steam distillation of the dried roots and the oil from Haiti is considered to have the most complex therapeutic chemistry.
The use of Vetiver can date back to the 12th century where the roots were moistened to use as a type of cooling system when hung over the windows in Asia and small bundles of roots were stored in linens and packed in shipments of cashmere and silks to repel mites and insects. The plant was also used for house hold purposes like thatching huts, making mats, and for repelling insects. In India the oil is used to for incense and perfumes for meditation to increase awareness and folklore says it contain the magic for its ability to increase abundance.
