    Yes, respected hasan1, the colour and aroma you mentioned that is Khus of course. Another fragrance is always there, that is 'the fragrance soil emits after rain'. Last, Khus doesn't smell green grass, but dries and stiff one, but wet as well. Colour is of course green, and viscosity is really high. Longevity is exceptional.

    you can buy from ebay 20$ for 3 ml.
    I have Haitian organic vetiver from eden not diluted one the 100% pure oil but is light golden color.
    the Ajmal green color really looks amazing.
    is it possible? i have never see pure essential oil with this kind of color looks like green paint.

    Thats me in a video about vetiver. If its ruh khus. Its thick viscid almost pasty however not with black tinge. On skin its dark green with a clear halo. It starts dense green then turns smokey and then sweet. Slightly tarry. Its not extremely potent. Ruh Khus differs from Vetiver essential oil. Ruh Khus is wild vetiver done in hydro in North India.

    He he. Yeah bro. Its such a beautiful dignified scent. I highly recommend trying Haitian Vetiver by Ermenogildo Zegna. It will give you the idea of Ruh Khus drydown. It is sweet and super cozy. Also Vetiver by Darkwood Forest Apothecary at 60usd/50ml is such a delight with added cardamom and ylang ylang. It lasts for a whole day.

    Tried them both and love them both :)

    But nothing can compare with my fathers vintage khus oil. That's pure love for me :Inlove:

    But he don't like when I play with his oils too much :Cry::Cry::thumbsdown:

    Great great. Has any body tried Moosa Nagar Khus. So far as my little information go, Khus of/from Moosa Nagar is the best, and I have used that as well at least 8 years before, though the bottle is still with me. Even today it smells beautifully earthy. Respected Nikhil can guide in this matter. Is Moosa Nagar famous for its distillery or Khus plantation?
    If Khus is not green, that is not Khus. Up till now it is what I have learnt.

    Interesting what a big difference in color makes the distillation and wild or organic.

    Ruh Khus is wild vetiver done in hydro in North India – dark emerald green.

    Eden’s Haiti organic vetiver roots in steam distillation – very light golden color.

    I got my Ruh Khus from Amit at R. K. Sons Essential Oils Company. Never used it yet, but the Tola is not as full as when I first got it four years ago, somehow it lost some volume. I plan to use some of it in blends, but only as I can find time in my busy schedule:Thumbsdown:

    @Oudamberlove what do you plan to mix it with? Do you think the excess water evaporated?

    Yes, probably some evaporation, but I opened the cap only 2 or 3 times. I have not tried any blends with it yet, but I have over 30 essential oils to experiment with :Geek::Geek:

    I am really not sure about Moosa Nagar Khus sir. I ll try and find out. Thanks for the tip. Khus ages well. It smells divine. The top grade is around 1000USD/Kg. Thats what you should try and score.
