  Vetiver, Haitian
Vetiveria zizanioides, hydro-distilled from roots, Haiti.

In 2016 Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti, flooding fields and farmlands, and killing hundreds. The survivors of this primarily agricultural country were left without the means to feed their families.  And the vetiver roots, which were a major export were flooded with salt water.  We have two producers of Haitian vetiver oil, and although both were fortunate enough to survive the storm, neither have been able to go back into production.  We thought we would be without this lovely oil for rears to come.  Because business loathes a vacuum.. the world market was flooded with adulterated Vetiver from Sri Lanka, and, of course, the cost of good Vetiver from India has skyrocketed because of the scarcity.

And last month I met with another importer who wanted to introduce me to his product line.  and among the samples?  VETIVER-HAITI!   The sample was lovely.  I was so excited I coudln't wait to order.  And it arrived today, June 30.  We have not had it analyzed yet. We probably will, but I trust my nose. This is a lovely oil.  I have missed it!

I love Vetiver—the honeyed sweetness of its scent, and the grounding effect it has when my mind is scattered.Supplies are limited. Much sweeter, and a bit lighter than our Indian Vetiver Oil. I prefer not to blend with this one, because somehow we need more to reach the same effect, but to wear alone, or blend with just one other oil…perfection. This oil is specifically produced for the perfumers of Grasse.

Emotionally, Vetiver is very grounding and balancing; I value it for this. Vetiver is a key ingredient in our anti-anxiety blend, Reunité. It is also very relaxing, a mild sedative, useful for stress I would not be without it, and use it daily blended with Neroli, Petitgrain, and a touch of Citrus.

I’ve seen Vetiver recommended in treatments for anorexia; and have read that it stimulates production of red blood cells and that it is useful for “aches and pains.” It balances sebum production, so is useful in treating both oily and dry skin.

Vetiver is far too thick to come out of the largest orifice reducers we have. When you receive a bottle of it, you will need to remove the reducer and pipette or pour the oil out. Be sure to replace the reducer when you’re done as it creates a seal between the bottle and cap.
