Vetivert Historical Snippets:
Vetivert is a very versatile oil and its history of uses is also quite diverse. Since ancient India, Vetiver root has been dried and woven into sandals, mats, window blinds, baskets, and hand fans. It was also used as an ingredient in ancient perfumes and a fragrance to bed linen and clothing. An interesting fact is that the essential oil is still being used in 90% of all western perfumes and colognes. In Ayurvedic medicine, Vetivert was used for fevers, blood diseases, foul breath, urinary ulcers, infections, headaches and central nervous system support due to its astringent, bitter and cooling affect it has on the body.
