INGREDIENTS

Mitti attar, also known as "earthen attar" or "clay attar," is a traditional Indian perfume derived from the distillation of baked clay or soil. It has a unique and earthy aroma that captures the essence of the monsoons and the wet earth. While the actual preparation process can be quite complex, the ingredients used are relatively simple. Here's what you can include in the INGREDIENTS list for mitti attar:

  1. Baked Clay or Soil: The main ingredient is the clay or soil that imparts the characteristic aroma to the attar. It is essential to use clean, organic clay or soil free from any contaminants or chemicals.
  2. Carrier Oil: A neutral, odourless carrier oil is used to extract and capture the fragrance of the baked clay or soil.
  3. Distillation Apparatus: The equipment used for the distillation process, such as a copper still or hydro-distillation setup, is necessary to extract the attar's aroma.

That's it! The process of making mitti attar involves distilling the baked clay or soil using the carrier oil, which absorbs the unique aroma, creating the desired fragrance. The resulting mitti attar is a concentrated perfume oil that is popularly used in perfumery and aromatherapy.
