Words by Anny Schneider

The essential oil of Davana comes from a kind of Asian wormwood very close to the annual perennial (Artemisia annua L.).

That would have febrifuges effects but also parasiticide, insect repellent and depurative blood effects.

Its scent is floral, heady and it is of very resinous consistency.

It is harvested between February and April in order to yield the best essential oil possible.

Origin of this essential oil

This Davana essential oil from India is distilled from the stems and leaves of the plant. 


Rare and precious oil, its floral and also rather fruity smell makes it a favorite ally in perfumery.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.


To be used in low doses and diluted because it can be neurotoxic.

More information

It is grown commercially for its fragrant leaves and flowers mainly in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu in India.

Davana flowers are offered to Shiva, the god of transformation, by devotees, and decorate his altar throughout the day.
