In perfumery it often found in oriental  blends and also often used to give a perfume a woody note (even if it is technically a bunchgrass). In India it is worn on its own in the hot days, and is also an ingredient of many traditional attars. It is also used in Ayurvedic cosmetics.

Vetiver has been used in traditional medicine in South Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand), and West Africa. Old Tamil literature mentions the use of vetiver for medical purposes. The plant is also sometimes used to protect crops and repel aggressors and parasites. The dried herb is also burnt as incense.
