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.

Emotional Support

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.

Mental Calm

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.

Ladies Only

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!

  • “Being a woman comes with its own set of issues” Being a divine feminine cyclical being, once understood and embraced, is one of the most magical and empowering experiences in this life. Statements like this continue the misconception that to be a woman is to suffer. The books, Woman Code by Alisa Vitti and Wild Power by The Red School are a great start to understanding the power, bliss and wisdom of being a woman.

  • Just received my Davana, and made the diffuser recipe you sent. Davana smells devine. Thank you plant therapy for all the recipes you send. Your awesome

  • I have this oil in my collection, but haven’t really used it. I didn’t realize the all the benefits. I’m glad that Plant Therapy writes these articles because I learn more about the oils and ways to use them.

  • I use Davana diluted in a roller bottle at night, which works well to calm racing thoughts. It’s very calming. I’m glad this often overlooked oil is getting some attention.

  • I don’t know how typical I am, but I am a man and I find davana eo to be particularly appealing, soothing and even arousing. So my guess is that it can go well beyond being of benefit for just female sexual concerns.
