25 Days of Essential Oils – Day 4

Day 4 is here! Davana essential oil is another one that many may never use or even heard of.

This is an essential oil I used in one of my deodorant recipes due to its astringent properties. It has a uniquely warm and sweet scent that makes it a great choice for blending with other essential oils of your liking. This is made from flowers, but the floral scent is very weak. This essential oil is also a little more pricey than more common essential oils.

Essential Oil Common Name: Davana

Latin Name: Artemisia pallens

Family: Asteraceae

Part of Plant Used: Flowers

Extraction Method: Steam Distilled

Notes (Scent and Staying Power): Middle-Top

Safe for Ages: Safe for all ages, but there are some general guidelines when it comes to children and essential oils. Use caution when diffusing around children under 6 months old. Check out my blog post on diffusing here. Use caution when using topically for children under the age of 2. Their skin is a lot more delicate during that age group and a little goes a long way. If you create a blend for yourself, use a quarter of the amount of essential oil for children as a safe guideline.

Safe for Pregnancy: Yes

Topical Max: There is no topical max for this essential oil, but always dilute before applying to the skin

Shelf Life: 5 Years
