What is attar?The fine art of making attar (an aromatic oil extracted from various botanicalsources) is generally believed to have its origin in India.A belief based on archaeological excavations in the Indus Valley that revealed 5000-year-old copper stills used in the distillation process.Further evidence of the use of attar in ancient times is provided by the ayurvedic textCharaka Samhita, while the Gandhayukti—another text dating back to the Vedicperiod—lists attar ingredients and also offers recipes for various perfumes, soaps,mouth fresheners, talcum powders and incense.
How is attar made?Layering them with clean and pure water and boiling the mixture to a point a vapor ofthe entire mixture flows out and then condenses and the droplets pour down into a potthat seizes the crucial oil required for making the attar.Manufacturing an attar perfume requires accumulating loads of blossom petals into a largestill (deg).The water in the deg is isolated from the oil in the morning and freshblossom petals are supplemented to the water. This routine may go onfor a few weeks.The left over water called hydrosol is often traded asscented waterIt has to be stored under refrigeration for prevention of it gettingspoilt. Hydrosols and other natural element are habitually used togenerate a inimitable attar fragrance.
