Vetiver oil is an essential oil that is extracted through steam distillation of vetiver roots. The vetiver plant is found in India, Haiti, and Indonesia. It has a soothing and stabilizing scent, which increases its utilization in fragrances, and is further used as a major constituent in approximately one-fifth of all fragrances. The oil’s soothing and calming aroma has led to its increased adoption as a complementary treatment for anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders, including Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Firstly, vetiver oil being a widely used ingredient in spas and wellness centers, the temporary closure of public facilities has led to a significant demand decline. Moreover, consumer spending on cosmetics and personal care products had also dropped, particularly during the initial few months of the pandemic, as consumers prioritized on purchasing only essential goods.
