Davana Essential Oil

Davana

Davana Essential Oil is typically steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of Artemisia pallens, a shrub that is primarily found in India.

According to Brian Lawrence (as cited in Essential Oil Safety, Edition 2) and various GC/MS reports, Davana Essential Oil is comprised primarily davanone, a ketone. Not much is known about this specific ketone, but ketones generally tend to be anti-viral, analgesic, mucolytic and can help promote the healing of wounds. Refer to the Uses section below for more information on the potential applications for Davana Essential Oil.

Davana Essential Oil

Aromatically, Davana Essential Oil possesses a rich, fruity, slightly woody aroma. It is appreciated and used within natural fragrancing applications. It's an aromatically versatile oil that blends well with essential oils in the wood, spice, resin, floral and citrus families.
