Gul-Daudi in Ayurveda Sevanti- derives from the word seva- meaning service as it encourages humility and devotion.

Its lightness balances the heavy intensity of pitta. Its sweet aroma awakens the heart and cools the agitation of an imbalanced pitta. It goes straight to the eyes and skin via the liver.
