The Khus drink is the ultimate summer cooler. It is also commonly known as vetiver and is categorised with other fragrant grasses such as lemongrass, citronella and palmarosa. It is also sold as a ready-to-drink green juice as it has the unique property of cooling the body and hydrating during this time of the year.

Benefits of Khus roots 

* The magic potion is said to have large amounts of antioxidants present in it. It boosts immunity but also protects the organs and tissues from any kind of damage caused by free radicals.
