Sourced from India, Davana has a rich history in Ayurvedic healing. 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, which results in this beautiful, fruity essential oil.
Most essential oils have a number of different therapeutic benefits and Davana is no exception. But where this oil shines is when it comes to helping support and balance emotions. It can help soothe nervous tension and bring about a sense of calm. It is especially good when you’re feeling drained or frazzled after a long day.
As so many of us know, if you’re having a rough time emotionally, it can take a toll mentally. So while you’re diffusing Davana to help calm emotions, it can also help quiet your mind and soothe nerves. Before you know it, you’ll enjoy a calm, peaceful mindset and a more relaxed state.
Being a woman comes with its own set of issues. And Davana is an excellent choice to support these issues! It can ease the symptoms associated with menopause. What’s more, it can also help when that time of the month stops being every month. This is oil is great to have on hand no matter where you are in life.
Perfumes & Fragrance
And last but certainly not least, Davana can make an excellent addition to your natural perfume and fragrance DIYs. It is even said that although it smells the same in the bottle, it smells differently on each person who wears it as a fragrance. Plus it blends well with citrus, woodsy and even other floral oils. The possibilities for a new personal fragrance are endless!
