Cultivated in the west of Madagascar and harvested during the rainy season, the
vetiver is a plant that stands out from others by its presentation.
Indeed, it has the shape of a tangled cluster and has white roots. It has always been used and very
appreciated for its aromatic properties.
This plant is also known for its healing, anti-depressant and sedative properties.
Because of the odoriferous molecules it contains, it is highly prized by manufacturers for its insecticidal properties.
In domestic use, its scent helps keep moths away.
It is also widely used in cosmetology and perfumery as a base note in perfumes, both male and female. A famous perfume created in 1959 by Guerlain bears, in all simplicity, the name of Vetiver.
Our baskets in organic vetiver from Madagascar are woven entirely by hand by our craftsmen. Production is limited, as they are few
Many have mastered this technique.
All its virtues and its fragrance are diffused over the years.
As soon as the vetiver loses its fragrance, it must be immersed in clear water and it will regain all its aroma.
