Blue Lotus Absolute Oil (Nelumbo nucifera)
This is prized Blue Lotus Absolute Oil. 1 ton of flowers makes 1 kilo of this precious oil, hence it's high price tag. Unlike other absolutes that are often made with harsh chemicals, this absolute oil is made in a strictly controlled, sterile environment, leaving no residue behind. This oil has an extremely rich scent and is completely organic. It comes from a single pond on a small farm in Nepal, and we are the exclusive distributors for this coveted oil.
Nelumbo nucifera (Sacred Lotus Petals) have become etched in folklore because of a fabulous people who supposedly occupied the north coast of Africa and lived on the lotus, which brought forgetfulness and happy indolence. The Sacred Lotus flower was also what the Ulysses' crew smoked after coming ashore following years at sea. Similar in effect to the Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile, the Sacred Lotus is often steeped in wine or tea. It is said to produce a "feeling of joy that permeates the whole body, emanating from every cell" that is "delightfully wonderful and lasts for some time."
