Botanical Name: Lilium
Place of Origin: Lilies do not have any special origin or nativity but according to the studies done in this field, lilies grow best in the northern temperate regions of the world. Lily derives its name from the Latin term ‘Linnaean’, which refers to the slender, drum shape of the flowers. Lilies stand as a symbol of purity and vitality. Lilies are one of the most rare species of flowers and also the most beautiful ones. The attar extracted from these flowers not only have the characteristic fragrance but also additional health benefits.
Attar have taken the fragrance industry by storm because of their alcohol-free nature and longevity. Attar are gaining significance and entering the mainstream perfumery business. Because of the fact that attar are the products of old ancient Arab Culture, the key factors like source ingredient, methods of preparation for most of the attar do not exist in a documented form.
The renditions from oral culture have propagated the use of attar and made it popular in the present day. Although original information is not there, the basic information of the blending and mixing technique is deployed to extract attar from a combination of different species of lilies to maximize the gift of nature to mankind.
How does it smell: A complex combination of floral and sweet.
Method of extraction: In order to retain the vitality of the special ingredients used to extract the attar, the traditional method of “Deg and Bhapka” more popularly known as “Steam Distillation” is used. In this method:
- Dewy flowers are picked in the twilight. This is a task that requires skill, hence experienced workers are used to picking flowers.
- The flowers are then collected and taken into the distillery.
- Petals are soaked in water for some time and then transported into copper stools called Degs
- The next step is to seal the Degs to lock the steam from escaping.
- The Deg is connected to a copper pot via a hollow bamboo pipe called chonga.
- The Deg is now heated until steam starts to form.
- As the still is heated, the water molecules from the petal and water mixture start to evaporate and change into steam.
- After a few hours, the distillate is condensed and then the mixture is connected to the setup.
- The filtered liquid is emptied out in a copper utensil and again the same process is repeated.
- The attar extracted as a result of the second distillation is in the purest form.
Base Material or Oil: Sandalwood or paraffin.
- Relief from headache and muscle tension.
- Has anti-inflammatory properties.
- Relief from Insomnia.
- Helps in Uplifting Mood.
- Helps to calm down the agitated nervous system.
How to Apply:
- Take a small quantity of the attar and apply it on the inner side of the wrists. Then rub both the wrists against each other.
- Apply on the inner side of each earlobe, then gently rub it.
- These are the exterior pressure points of our body which allow the fragrance of attar to linger for a long time.
