Vetiveria zizanioides

Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of Vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilisation. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effects, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. It can also be used before bedtime to promote a soothing environment.

Why Haiti?

A hearty grass that can survive both flooding and drought, Vetiver grows well in Haiti’s weather conditions. Vetiver grass also helps to prevent erosion and provides additional nutrients to soil. Haiti exports about half of the world’s Vetiver essential oil.

How Does it Work?


Vetiver is a member of the grass family. Its root system can grow 2 to 4 m down, making it ideal for preventing erosion. The roots grow vertically rather than horizontally unlike most other grass roots.

The essential oil is distilled from these roots. The longer that vetiver roots have been in the ground, the higher the quality of essential oil. This is why our farmers are paid a premium to leave the roots in the ground longer. Ideally, vetiver should be harvested about 12 to 18 months after planting.

Promoting Cooperatives in Haiti

One of doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing Principles is to promote co-operatives by respecting the right for all employees and producers to initiate and participate in these organisations. Here’s how this has helped our Vetiver Partners:

  • These co-operatives provide farmers with rights and bargaining power that ensure fair prices, consistent income, access to prepayments, and long-term contracts
  • Co-operatives receive regular training on best growing and harvesting practices
  • We’ve also provided storage warehouses for the co-operatives where vetiver roots can be collected before distillation or stored to dry during the rainy season
Most Tested. Most Trusted.
