Choya Loban Attar has a beautiful smoky, sweet resinous aroma with woody-balsamic undertones. It is produced in the centuries old traditional way using Frankincense and benzoin resin using a special earthenware vessel called a ‘choya’ in which it is heated. The rich natural fragrance of Choya Loban has a calming and soothing effect creating a relaxing ambience. The production of choya loban attar is a labour-intensive and time-consuming process, which is why it is a relatively rare and expensive type of natural perfume. However, the resulting oil is highly prized for its rich, warm, and smoky aroma.
Since ancient times, people have used the Choya Loban attar to make “Havan Samagri” incense, which is used to offer prayers to God and obtain blessings for their growth and health. This attar is also widely used as part of various holy places by devout persons for religious purposes.

THE BACKGROUND ON INDIAN ATTARS/NATURAL PERFUMES

The word Attar is derived from the Hindu/Urdu word Ittar which in turn derives from the similar Persian word for Perfume, Itar, and is an essential oil derived from botanical sources usually blended with a wood oil like, but not always, Sandalwood.

The practice of extracting scent from flowers herbs and spices began in India and has been used there for at least 700 years by skilled artisans to produce exquisite fragrances with some attars actually improving with age like a good wine. The ageing period can last from one to ten years depending on the botanical used and the results desired. Most commonly these oils are extracted via hydro or steam distillation and generally natural perfumes which qualify as Attars are distilled with water rather than by chemical means and they are also alcohol free. Attars are a luxury and in ancient times were used in offerings to the gods.

For thousands of years, attars were considered in some societies to be something that attracted angels and warded off evil spirits. Saints and spiritual aspirants would adorn themselves with these scents to assist them in their journey towards enlightenment.
