Davana is extracted by the steam distillation of flowers of the Davana plant, botanically known as Artemisia Pallens.
Grown and cultivated in India Davana Oil is used throughout the perfumery and flavour world. The odour is fresh and fruity with hints of vanilla, strawberry and blackcurrant. It can be classed as a medium strength base note in for both flavours and fragrances.
The scent is thought to be comforting and as such offers a relaxing effect when used in aromatherapy.
Davana also has many therapeutic benefits, which include uses as an antidepressant as well its properties offering antiseptic, antiviral and a mild insect repellent benefits.
Davana is a sensitive botanical and produces a high yield only when weather conditions are just right. The harvest in March did produce a good yield due to a combination of good weather and the amount of acreage planted. Unfortunately, the farmers planted too much and this resulted in softer prices. In view of the depressed prices, it is likely that farmers will drastically cut down on acreage and look to other crops to whittle down the excess inventories from last year. Prices seem to be touching a trough; it is an opportune time to cover long-term requirements.
