Observations and Anecdotal Information
According to our supplier, the ancient shamama family of attars is “built around a complex of over 60 natural ingredients and a number of different traditional processes that takes up to two months to produce”.
The addition of agarwood gives a rare, ancient and sacred dimension to the aroma, as only agarwood can do.
Medicinal uses of agarwood have been passed down in many eastern cultures and traditions. In Nepal and Tibet, it is used to treat emotional, mental and psychological issues, and to bring the mind to a state of deep meditation. It is also used as a tranquilizer.
In Islamic, Greek, and Chinese cultures, it is known as a treatment for lung and respiratory ailments, throat problems, digestive issues, and use as a sedative and anti-toxin.
