Collection: Attars

Attar, is an essential oil derived from botanical sources. Most commonly these oils are extracted via hydro or steam distillation.

Attar can also be expressed by chemical means but generally natural perfumes which qualify as Attars are distilled with water.

The oils are generally distilled into a wood base such as sandalwood and then aged. The aging period can last from one to ten years depending on the botanical's used and the results desired.

Technically, Attars are distillates of flowers, herbs, spices and other natural materials such as baked soil over sandalwood oil/liquid paraffin's using hydro distillation technique with a deg.

Attar is commonly used within Muslim communities and among natives of the Indian Subcontinent and Arabia to treat numerous health disorders, and it was widely used in Greek medicine.

Attars are generally classified based on their perceived effect on the body.

  • 'Warm' Attars such as musk, amber and kesar (saffron) are used in winter, as they are believed to increase body temperature.
  • 'Cool' Attars such as rose, jasmine, khus, kewdaand mogra (Indian Jasmine) are used in summers for their perceived cooling effect on the body.

Although Attars are mostly used as a perfume, they are also used for medicinal and aphrodisiac purposes.
