Quality standard applied was Indonesia National Standard number 06-2386-2006 for vetiver oil. The yield of vetiverol by using bentonite was adsorbent 61,14 %, by zeolite was 68,42 %, by mixture 0,04 (b/z) was 66,48 %, and by mixture 0,05 (b/z) was 66,41 %. Based on the results, zeolite can give higher purification of vetiverol of increase vetiver oil quality.
