  • Biology
The Vetiver plant,Vetiveria zizanioides linn. [Gramineae], is widely known from ancient ages. The vetiver oil is native of India. The medicinal and commercial importance of the oil has been known since ancient days. In the present study, an experimental approach is applied to vetiver oil to elicit toxic responses over an exposure period of 90 days. Since no data are available in this regard, it was thought worthwhile to undertake acute and subacute toxicity studies in male and female rats…
