Plant of the month – February: Vetiver

For the past several years, we have been conducting extensive fieldworlk with the NRSC on this raw material. You can find all the harvesting information in the latest Natural Gazette report.

Found in many fragrances, often male ones, vetiver is at the heart of woody, cedar and amber notes. Our essential oil’s strengths lie in its woody, smoky, and spicy notes.

Obtained via steam distillation, the main constituents of vetiver essential oil are isovalencenol (10%-16%), khusimol (8.5-15%), isonootkatol (2.5-5.5%), and vetiselineol (3.5%-4.5%).
