Exceptionally rare, Davana essential oil is like a diamond in the aromatherapy world. It has a spectrum of fabulous uses and an aroma unlike any other.
Davana essential oil is used by luxurious perfumeries around the world to enhance fragrances with its fruity, grape-like aroma.
Davana is a fragrant, flowering herb that belongs to the Asteraceae family (commonly known as the “daisy family”). In ancient Ayurvedic medicine, this prized oil was often used for its ability to uplift mood, decongest, deter microbes/bacteria, and rich antioxidant content.
The plant that Edens Garden’s Davana is derived from grows to about a foot in height and is native to India. The entire plant is put through a steam distillation process to extract the essential oil. Even a few drops of Davana will add a chic note to any blend. Try mixing it with Rose or your favorite floral essential oil.
