The demand for vetiver oil is rising among fragrance manufacturers owing to its smoky and woody aroma. The chemical composition of the product and its solubility in alcohol is expected to improve its miscibility, thereby, making it a unique ingredient in perfumes. Vetiver oil is used to develop products such as lotions, cosmetics, perfumes, and deodorants.
