Ruh Khus (Vetiveria zizaniodes) is hydrodistilled from roots of wild harvest plants growing in North India. It is olive green to emerald green in color due to the fact that it is distilled in copper vessels in the traditional way. 

The wild roots are now rarely distilled due to low yield and the labor intensive distillation technique.

The olfactory properties of Ruh Khus need to be evaluated for each separate batch that one smells. The wild harvested roots dispay a wide range of odors depending on where they are harvested, the age of the roots, etc. The range of subtle olfactory properties displayed by Ruh Khus is much  greater than in cultivated vetiver. It may include rose like notes, saffron notes, etc intermingled with the deep, earthy, mossy, rooty aromas characteristic of vetiver.

The current batch of Ruh Khus which I just received olive green in color displaying an elegant earthy-mossy-rooty bouquet with a soft, sweet, spicy, roseaceous undertone. The Ruh has excellent tenacity. It is a unique and lovely Ruh Khus.
