Vetivert is a tall, fragrant, densely tufted perennial grass with an extensive network of fibrous, aromatic roots. It is native to Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and India, but it has been cultivated as widely as the Philippines, West Africa, Japan, and South America. The essential oil is mainly produced in Haiti and Java via steam-distillation of the plant's chopped roots.

Vetivert oil has been used in the East since antiquity, for its fragrance. The grass was also traditionally used for thatching and for making awnings, blinds, sunshades and mats, which not only gave huts a lovely fragrance but also deterred insects. 

Today, Vetivert 
is often used as a fixative in oriental-type perfumes and as a natural fragrance ingredient in soaps. It also helps to repel moths and can be sprinkled onto cotton wool balls and placed in wardrobes and draws to protect clothes.

In modern aromatherapy Vetivert essential oil 
is known as the 'oil of tranquillity' as it has a deeply relaxing effect on the mind and body. It is calming, soothing and restorative and is particularly beneficial for mature, tired and undernourished skin.
