Botanical Name: Artemisia pallens

Main Constituents:
Davanon: 55%

Plant Part: Stems and Leaves

Origin: India

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A viscous, dark green to reddish-brownish liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: The scent of Davana is difficult to express because it smells very different on each individual. The descriptions tend to alternate between rather masculine floral scents to a woodsy, balsamic odor.

Blends With: Davana Essential Oil can be easily blended, but the end result may be different on different users. Davana should be blended to suit individuals.

Product Abstract: Davana is a small plant with the oil coming from the stems and leaves. Each day, the faithful in India offer Davana blossoms to Shiva, the god of Transformation. The flowers remain on his altar throughout the day and are removed in the evening. When applied to the skin, Davana can have a different scent on diverse people, a peculiar property which is highly valued in perfumery to create fragrances with individual notes.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

It is definitely different. To me it smells like cheap brandy. I tried to put a little in some perfume mixes but no matter how little I put in it seemed to dominate. Like one person said - it does grow on you, but that is not what I am looking for in a scent. I will be leaving this one at the back of the cabinet.

Very interesting scent. I had to really strain to remember what this smells like. There is a folk remedy where you take Coltsfoot leaves, boil in water and sugar to make a cough remedy. This is the smell of that homemade syrup.

Incredible apricot/peachy bouguet straight from the bottle. Morphs into a different scent on application to the skin. As previous reviewers have said, it smells different on each person. I like it neet, but I'm going to try mixing it and see what results.

To me Davana in its concentrated form smell like Rum liquer. At first I did not favor it at all, but it is starting to grow on me. I bought it primarily for its anti-parasitic properties, which i have no proff of it is working.
