Derived from the leaf part of the heena plant, Kasturi Hina Attar has a spicy, warm, woodsy, earthy aroma. The attar is prepared by blending different herbs, spices & flowers together to get the exotic aroma that has wide demand in perfumery as well as aroma therapy based applications.
The musk oil is produced from a gland removed from the bottom of the belly of the Asia Musk Deer, Tokapi Deer, or Chinese Wild Deer. It is about the size of a small orange, and can only be obtained from the adult male deer. It is the either boiled in oil, or dried in to grains. Using this method, all deer are trapped and it is estimated that it will take 3 to 5 deer to find a fully mature stag (male). In Russia alone that would be 60,000 deer killed in one year to equal the amount of musk sold at their markets. All this for perfumes (5 % of trade) and traditional medicines of China (bulk of musk trade) and others. Currently the musk gland is used in as many as 400 Chinese and Korean traditional remedies, that have been made for over 5,000 years if not more. But as the populations grow in that area of the world, it consumes the habitat of this species, while demanding ever more Musk Deer's gland! Laws are in place to protect and conserve these deer in their range.
