Traditions and Folklore

 

Also known as khus or khus khus, Vetiver is a scented grass with its aromatic oil originating not from its leaves, but from its deep extending roots. The Vetiver plant has proven itself useful in many sub-tropical regions of the world, where it has made an appearance into daily lives. For centuries, its long roots have been dried and woven into roofs or used as bristle at the end of brooms. It is planted along hillsides to prevent erosion or as a useful aid in keeping insects away.

The distilled oil itself is used for a variety of purposes within aromatherapy and is well known for its nourishing, grounding and sensual qualities. It is famed in the perfume industry as a fixative and is used in many popular fragrances.

It is known as the "Oil of Tranquility" in India, due to its calming, meditative nature. It is seen as a tonic to the nerves and beneficial to those with an unsettled heart.
