Vetiver by Demeter Fragrance Library is a warm, strong root aroma dark and ripe. Vetiver has a rich history. In India it has been used to make blinds necessary to keep out the intense heat. When the blinds are sprinkled with water they emit the vetiver scent. In Java the root has been used for centuries in weaving mats and thatching huts. The vetiver root is used in folk magic for its purported ability to provide safety and increase financial resources. A ritual designed to promote personal safety calls for inhaling vetiver while visualizing one's body as being sealed off from negative energies.
