"Blue Lotus" is a "Nymphaea caerulea" plant which is also known today as a Water Lily. Blue Lotus was the most important cultivated (ritual) plant of ancient Egypt. You could see these Water Lilies growing in wild or in ponds almost everywhere in the Nile. It was also artificially planted inbuilt bodies of water and in temple ponds. The Blue Lotus became very popular for its enchanting beauty and also for its positive psychoactive effects. Egyptians used it in ceremonies having to do with death and birth. The great pharaoh Ramses II (1290-1223 B.C.E.) was made almost completely of White and Blue Lotus flowers.
The Blue Lotus was a sacred plant and was traditionally used to relieve psychic pain, create a feeling of well being and euphoria because it increases circulation. It was a symbol of Patience for some cultures. The flower with its smell highers up intuition. It contains an anti-spasmodic called Nuciferin and contains Aporphine. The history of this species says that it appeared as a sort of Cannabis of ancient Egypt. Ancient people used it as a strong aphrodisiac.
Absolutes have a more pungent scent than essential oils and are similar to a plant's scent in nature. Absolutes contain the plant's etheric oil and other vital components, so they are more evolved in composition and smell. Also, they are denser than essential oils and have a more intense color.
The Blue Lotus Absolute extraction method is with carbon dioxide. This method provides complete extract, which is also suitable for aromatherapy. This method of extracting oil is one of the highest quality. Our Absolute oils are made in controlled, sterilized environments, and leave no residue behind. This method ensures that these highly concentrated extracts are safe for the Mind, body, and SPIRIT.
When used or mixed in products, we advise caution when dosing, as it is a pure concentrate with a highly intense smell. Dilute 0.5 - 2% of the oil in massage oil, mixed in water for the evaporator, for potpourri, as a perfume, 3 - 5 drops for a bath. E.g. it is recommended to add only two drops of Absolute in 100g of base oil for aromatherapy or different types of ointments. Add only enough to achieve the desired scent (e.g., ten drops of essential oil for the same intensity at the same amount). To make a simple perfume, take 10ml of Jojoba oil and add two drops of Blue Lotus Absolute. Pure extract on the skin is used only in a microdose.
On the fabric, carpet, bedding, bath, and skin, it smells beautiful and brings pure joy to all embraced by its scent.
