Observations and Anecdotal Information
This ancient essential oil co-distillation is distilled in traditional copper degs. The distillation of wild vetiver roots is seldom undertaken any more, as the yield is quite low and the process is labor intensive.
The olive green color of the ruh comes from being distilled in the copper degs. The aromatic notes vary depending on age of the roots, where they are harvested, etc. Each batch of ruh khus will be unique. It may contain notes of saffron or rose, intermingled with the earthy, mossy, rooty aromas of true vetiver.
