This Vetiver Oil is distilled from the roots of a grass that grows in the hills of Southwestern Haiti. Beyond its economic value, which is sufficient to support thousands of families on the island, Vetiver’s strong roots aid in preventing soil erosion on the island, preserving it for lucrative agricultural use. In fine fragrance, Vetiver’s... Read more »
Production had just begun in January, but with the Haitian government voting to censure Maduro during January’s OAS meeting, they are no longer able to subsidize fuel prices. Production costs have dramatically increased. Prices are firm.
Availability has increased, however prices continue to be firm. Increased labor and fuel costs are cited.
With rain diminishing crop size prices continue to firm.
Rains during the traditional harvest period in Haiti have deterred some farmers from harvesting in addition to diminishing the yields from roots that are harvested. In Indonesia available quantities this year are higher than those of last year.
Processing of roots into oil continues, however expenses at both the farm level and processing plants have increased. Pricing has firmed and will continue to firm in the foreseeable future.
Prices are up and not much quantity is available until the new crop is ready at the end of January / early February.
Prices and availability remain firm going into the new crop in December/January. New Production looks positive now, but more news will follow in the next weeks as the first roots are collected for distillation.
Very little of the Indonesian quality is available at origin. In Haiti, no new distillation will begin before the new main harvest starting in January / February.

Heavy rains in Haiti have made harvesting of the roots very difficult. Prices for oil continue to go up.

Cedryl Acetate is acetylated from cedarwood oil. Its aroma is woody, slightly leathery with an earthy undertone similar to that of vetiver. Cedryl Acetate’s fixative properties work well in soaps, especially those where a lighter, creamier woody note is needed. In other fragrance applications it blends well with Iso Bornyl Acetate, Lavandin Oils, and Ionones.... Read more »
Guaiacwood Acetate is derived from the essential oil of Bulnesia sarmienti, a hardwood tree native to the Gran Chaco region of Paraguay, Argentina, and Southern Brazil. It differentiates itself from the essential oil by a reduced “smoked ham” note in favor of the more delicate sweet woody, floral character also found in the wood. Additionally,... Read more »
