India is a country with vast botanical resources that have been used since ancient times to enhance the lives of her people in multifarious ways. Aromatic plants, in particular have revered place in the hearts of India’s people as the sublime beauty of the fragrances contained in them symbolize the mystery of life that cannot be seen with the eye yet pervades the entire creation.Attars are traditional Indian perfumes which are created by hydro-distilling various flowers, roots, herb and spices into pure sandalwood oil. Attars are highly esteemed as one of the only therapeutic catalysts which act simultaneously on every level of a person’s existence. The entire team of Mahi Organics doffs its hat in respect of a few dedicated artisans who appreciate the art and craft of distillation using copper stills and the amazing fixative qualities of sandalwood the base of all pure attars. One of the most notable things about this process is that genuine attar created by distilling aromatic plants into sandalwood, get better and better with the passing years!
The attars then become one way that people living in other countries can connect with the spirit of the land because the odors of plants have such a fine way of carrying our hearts to the places where they are growing. We offer these attars to the society with a traditional belief mentioned in the ancient ‘shloka’ (translated from Sanskrit):“When smelted again and again gold acquires purer hue, when cut into pieces repeatedly the sugarcane continues to be sweeter, when rubbed repeatedly sandal continues to diffuse its fragrance. The virtuous ones acquire no imperfection in their nature even in the face of adversities.”
