Vetiver eo (Haiti) / Sweet, Earthy, Mossy, Rooty, Precious Woods / $45 oz

Another remarkable scented grass indigenous to British India, is the deliciously perfumed Khus-Khus grass of Rajpootana {Andropogon Muricatus), of which mats and other fabrics are made. It is a very coarse, woody fibred plant; things made of it are sometimes sold in London, in the form of fans and other small articles. Its peculiarity is that when it is wetted it emits a delicious aromatic fragrance, something after the same kind as sandal wood, which quite perfumes the air of houses. It is therefore much used in the form of mats, for hanging across doorways, verandahs, etc., in India, during the hot weather, where, as it is then constantly kept wetted with water, it fills the adjacent rooms with its fragrance.Introduction.
