Motia (Jasmine) Attar (Jasmin sambac) - India

Scents of Earth $75.00

A wonderfully fragrant traditional hydro-distilled Jasmine Attar (Jasmin sambac) from Uttar Pradesh, India. The traditional attars of India are rarely found in their pure form today. An attar is created by a certain proportion of flowers or other aromatic plants, in this case the captivating Jasmin sambac flowers, put into a copper vessel containing water and sealed. The aromatic vapors produced from a wood or cow dung fire rise through bamboo pipes and pass into another copper vessel containing sandalwood oil which sits below the larger distilling one containing the flowers. The vapors condense and after distillation, the water and oil separate, allowing most of the aromatic molecules to become absorbed into the sandalwood oil. The process is repeated for a minimum of 15 days until the sandalwood becomes totally saturated with the perfume of jasmine.
