Vetiver is a hardy grass that is indigenous to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ceylon and Malaysia. Commonly also known as “Khus” this grass grows wild (in North India) and is also cultivated (in south India). Swedish taxonomist Carolus Linnaeus gave it the name zizanioides – which literally translates to “by the river side”. Khus roots are used as curtains in the hot Indian summer months for their scenting and cooling effect. Indonesia and Haiti lead the global Vetiver Oil production contributing about 2/3rd’s of the world production, in India we produce some of the best quality Vetiver Oil in the world.
We source over Vetivert from both North & South India. We utilize a method called Super-critical-fluid-extraction in which we use CO2 gas as the agent to extract the purest extract.
