14 Photos, Day 3: Vetiver

I hadn’t realized how much work actually went into creating this decorative orb made out of vetiver root. When I examined it closely, I noticed that the “rope” is made of hundreds of strands that have been roughly but tightly wrapped, then arranged and tied to stay in place.

And it’s a multisensory experience: If you douse it with water, or keep it in a humid room, it lightly scents the air with vetiver. (The plant, not the band.)

  1. According to an herbal guide, Vetiver, on an emotional level, calms nervousness, relieves tension, and helps induce deep restful sleep. I’d move the bundle into the boudoir pronto.
