Vetiver is “The fragrance of the soil”. The roots of the grass produce a rich, sensuous golden oil that is deeply relaxing and grounding.

Floracopeia is delighted to offer such an incredible Vetiver oil. Of all of the essential oils, few capture the aromatic complexity of the earth’s botanical bounty as completely as vetiver grass. Organically grown in Haiti, this oil is used for therapeutic, meditative and perfuming purposes. Its sweet, rooty, deeply relaxing aroma, which is reminiscent of woods and marshlands, is grounding, cooling and nourishing.

Used for regenerating damaged topsoils and for preventing erosion, vetiver is easily propogated. The rich, sensuous, earthy oil of vetiver is produced by harvesting and distilling the roots of the plant. Although it may be the world’s most commonly used perfume fixative—meaning it is an effective base note that holds lighter top notes to the skin—vetiver is in itself an extremely healing oil to the body and the mind. Used in liniments and massage oils, vetiver oil promotes comfort and assists the joints. It is also valued as a component in cosmetic preparations for its natural affinity for the skin and its ability to enhance skin health and radiance. Through its strengthening, tonic, grounding and regenerating effects, it supports and stabilizes the nervous system, making it a good choice for soothing and comforting body and mind. Vetiver promotes emotional equilibrium, purifies the mind and enhances concentration. It also has a strong power of attraction and enhances sensual and romantic moods. Deeply calming, balancing and restorative, vetiver promotes rejuvenation on all levels and aids relaxation. Vetiver is an excellent choice to keep on your nightside table for promoting deep and revitalizing sleep.

As one of the most biochemically complex of all essential oils, vetiver contains at least 150 identified aromatic compounds, and many more unidentified. Because its chemical properties are a function of the soil it is grown in, each batch of vetiver oil will have fragrance variations that are unique and subtle.

Vetiver oil is one of the most effective oils to use when excess wind, or the Vata dosha, are present. Being of the earth, this oil has calming, cooling, grounding and centering properties that work equally on the body and the mind. Due to its cool and watery nature derived from the moistened soil in which it grows, it is also excellent in working against excess heat, or Pitta dosha, in the body and mind.


Vetiver is perhaps the premier perfume fixative, and is said to be a component in 90% of all perfumes. Vetiver essential oil comes from grass roots that have been propagated by division. The best quality oil comes from roots that are 18 to 24 months old. These roots are freshly unearthed, cleaned, dried, soaked in water and distilled, which can take up to 24 hours. After the distillate separates into essential oil and hydrosol, the oil is skimmed off and allowed to age several months in order to mellow and deepen. Like sandalwood and patchouli, vetiver oil improves with age.
