Description

The davana plant is a member of the daisy family. It was traditionally used by Ayurvedic healers to balance the three Doshas, or energies, throughout the body and spirit. This holistic approach to balancing health and wellness is thousands of years old and is still practiced today. Davana essential oil has a sweet, exotic aroma that is often used in high-end fragrances and perfumes. Applied topically, it adapts to the chemistry of the wearer for a unique and personalized experience. Davana essential oil can also be used to beautify skin or diffused to create an environment of joy and romance.
