Botanical Name: Nelumbo nucifera
Plant Part: Flowers
Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction
Product Description: The sweet fragrance of White Lotus Absolute uplifts the mood and clears the mind. It is cherished in Ayurvedic practice, considered sacred to Hindus and known to promote serenity and enhance meditation. The white lotus absolutes tend to be very concentrated and generally need to be diluted in base oil or blended into other essential oils to allow the essences to open so that the more delicate notes can be experienced.
Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – becomes lost.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
Blends well with: Lotus White Absolute blends well with generally all oils, though it seems to work best with other floral oils.
