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.

4.0 5  Give it time on your skin

I did not like this when I first applied it. After about an hour the scent was different and much better. I think it will go nicely as a blend, but I\'m not a big fan of it alone.

3.0 5  Smells like alcohol

I had wanted more Magnolia oil from Oil of the Month Club, however it was no longer available next month! I emailed customer service, and they recommended this oil as a substitute. (Magnolia oil is a sweet floral/fruity scent I used for calming and relaxation.) This oil reminds me of a bottle of Triple Sec ( A cheap, orange flavored liquor)! I do not like the scent at all since there is a strong alcohol like smell to it. Therapeutically if mixed with another oil to dull the scent (orange sweet for me!) I found it to be a calming blend.

5.0 5  Relaxing

To kept this smells bright and almost boozy, like a margarita or some kind of mixed drink, which is odd because so many find it to smell like raisins or something like that- more earthy! So funny how our noses interpret smells. :) I find it very relaxing. Usually I do not add more than a drop to blends, because it is very powerful. Love this one and am very pleased to have it in my collection.

5.0 5  Different but Great

To me this smells like bourbon or bourbon mixed with Coke. After a while the boozie smell fades and it just smells fruity. I love it mixed with rose as a perfume. It was also great rubbed on my abdomen for cramps.
