A Flower to Auroville Mother--106
Artemisia pallens Walls.)
Behold, all spellbound
Flowers of this garland
Stuck in added affluence
Marikolundu, she's the new
Heaven born and travelled through
Crores of godly heavens
Pregnant with aroma heavens'
Grown on earth with leaves
Pairs pinnasect, pamatisect
Perfuming sweet in opposites
Flora golden like her scent
Now glued together strung
All drowned in curative aroma
A song in dulcet mood sung
Stay on Davana, stay on Davana
Davana oil is a very dark green or brownish green, like other artemisia oils. It's odor is sharp, pendtrating, bitter-green, foliage-like and powerfully herbaceous with a sweet-balsamic, tenacious undertone. At the time of Arctander's writing (1960,) davana was a new oil and not much had been done with it. He does recommend blending with fougère, and chypre materials which contain oikmoss, labdanum, etc, but this has a lot to do with the color.
