Vetiver has a sweet, earthy, herbaceous, warm and woody aroma and is deeply relaxing, grounding, and balancing. We use vetiver as an incense to cleanse and purify the home, but it can also be stored in drawers to imbibe its lovely scent.
Vetiver is an incredibly hardy and adaptive tall growing grass native to India with a long history of use in perfumery due to its fixative properties. Vetiver has a strong root system (6-13 feet deep) that helps to reduce soil loss, stabilize steep banks, and secure topsoil. Our vetiver comes from a small family organic farm in Haiti.
Ritual: Light your bundle over a burn-safe dish (see our offering dish) until a small flame has caught. Then lightly blow on the flame until it goes out and let smoke on the dish as you would incense. Do not leave unattended.
Care: When the smell begins to fade, soaking in water and air drying can revive the roots.
