Davana Essential Oil Product Sheet

This yellow-brown essential oil is steam distilled from an herb native to southern India and has a potent, fruity odor. The leafy green plant, which grows 12-18 inches tall and sports tiny, puffy yellow flowers, is revered by the people of the area who use the flowers in religious or ceremonial offerings. The whole plant is distilled right before the flowers open.

Traditionally, Ayurvedic healers in India have long used the herb for all manner of women's reproductive issues, from helping to support regular menses to easing menopausal concerns. Davana can also assist with minor "sniffles" and people there often apply it to the skin when encountering life's minor "lumps and bumps."  There is a popular folk belief that while Davana smells the same to everyone while in the bottle, it takes on a different individual fragrance of its own depending on who is wearing it.

In modern times, Davana is popular in perfumery to provide a fruity top-note and as a flavoring agent in bottled beverages and baked goods. Davana really shines when used for emotional concerns. When life really gets to us, it soothes the nerves, restores emotional calm, and is exceptional for quieting the mind.

To help restore depleted emotional reserves, diffuse 3 drops Frankincense Carteri, 2 drops Davana, and 1 drop Lavender.

For nervous tension and a racing mind, add 5 drops Davana, 4 drops Frankincense Carteri, and 3 drops Marjoram Sweet into an ounce of carrier oil or lotion. Massage into the chest and back of neck/shoulders for soothing relief.

The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

Love this oil!

This does have an unusual scent, but not unpleasant to me. Still, it always surprises me when folks rate these oils simply by their scent. As for me, while a pleasant smelling oil is always preferred, my main purpose for using them is to assist in various areas of my life. If it does what it is supposed to, I will learn to deal with a less than lovely scent when necessary or better yet, find a companion oil (or two or three) to mask the scent. Davana is a great oil and does what it is supposed to do. It calms and supports me and does a wonderful job grounding me on days when it all seems to be falling apart. I am very happy with my purchase.

Love this calming oil!

I keep the bottle in my purse. It has a wonderful calming effect on me. For "special" days I put a bit with my finger in the AC vents of the car. It is a weird scent, like raisins, and I know that doesn't sound wonderful, but everyone that has smelled it on me has loved it and wants some.

Earthy and Fruity Smell

I found this oil to have an earthy and fruity combination smell. I blended it with Patchouli and Buddha Wood in my office diffuser. It really made for a peaceful aroma.

I combined with jojoba oil and put into Plant Therapy's beautiful perfume bottle. The scent reminds me of tea and I do like it.
