Vetiver has a long and 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, which impart a fragrant coolness to the air; they are in great demand during the summer. The Vetiver root is used in folk magic for its purported ability to provide safety.
Much of the vetiver grown today is used in the perfume industry. Vetiver can not be made synthetically. Vetiver perfumes give pleasing aroma and has slow evaporation rate and cooling effect.
