- In summers, a bunch of fresh Vetiver roots is put in the earthen pot (Matka) to keep household drinking water cool and fragrant. This water is very useful to cure urinary disorders that may occur in summers.

- Vetiver is used to cure summer-related skin diseases. Fresh Vetiver roots are added to daily bathing water to get rid of sun rashes.

- Vetiver curtains: Mats made by weaving vetiver roots and binding them with ropes or cords are used in India to cool rooms in a house during summer. The mats are typically hung in doorways, windows as curtains. These are kept moist by spraying with water periodically; they cool the passing air, as well as emit a fresh aroma.
