Ruh Khus

Ruh Khus, also known as Vetiver, is a type of essential oil derived from the roots of the Vetiveria zizanioides plant, a member of the grass family. The oil has a unique aroma that is earthy, woody, and slightly sweet. It is often used in perfumery, aromatherapy, and as a flavoring agent.

One reason why Ruh Khus essential oil is green in color is due to the chlorophyll content present in the plant roots. Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants that helps them to absorb light energy for photosynthesis. During the distillation process used to extract the essential oil from the plant roots, some of the chlorophyll is also extracted along with the oil, giving it a green hue.

Another reason for the green color of Ruh Khus essential oil is the presence of other plant pigments such as xanthophylls and carotenes. These pigments are responsible for the yellow and orange colors found in many plants, but in combination with chlorophyll, they can also contribute to a green color.

In addition to its unique aroma and color, Ruh Khus essential oil is also known for its many therapeutic properties. It is often used in aromatherapy to promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve sleep quality. It is also believed to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antioxidant properties, making it useful in the treatment of various skin conditions and as a natural insect repellent.
