What is attar?

The fine art of making attar (an aromatic oil extracted from various botanical sources) is generally believed to have its origin in India. A belief based on archaeological excavations in the Indus Valley that revealed 5000year-old copper stills used in the distillation process. Further evidence of the use of attar in ancient times is provided by the ayurvedic text Charaka Samhita, while the Gandhayuktianother text dating back to the Vedic periodlists attar ingredients and also offers recipes for various perfumes, soaps, mouth fresheners, talcum powders and incense.

How is attar made?


Manufacturing an attar perfume requires accumulating loads of blossom petals into a large still (deg).

Layering them with clean and pure water and boiling the mixture to a point a vapor of the entire mixture flows out and then condenses and the droplets pour down into a pot that seizes the crucial oil required for making the attar.

The water in the deg is isolated from the oil in the morning and fresh blossom petals are supplemented to the water. This routine may go on for a few weeks.The left over water called hydrosol is often traded as scented water
It has to be stored under refrigeration for prevention of it getting spoilt. Hydrosols and other natural element are habitually used to generate a inimitable attar fragrance.
