Vetiver versatility: bioengioneering...and face masks.


This is a great introduction to Vetiver Grass bio engineering from Vetiver Panama. It's self explanatory.
Also of recent note is the use of Vetiver as fibre for face masks against Covid 19.
It's the initiative of salemexports.com in India. Unfortunately they don't seem to supply offshore markets.
While Vetiver has some antiseptic qualities it would not be active against viruses to suppress them -- just as tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil isn't.
Nonetheless, these masks do seem to be well designed. They sell for $AUD2.8 (Indian rupee equiv) each .
