Blue Lotus Absolute (Nymphaea caerulea) - India

Scents of Earth $35.00

Blue lotus absolute (Nymphaea caerulea) grown in India but is native to North and Central Africa. This Blue Lotus Absolute compared to the previous oil we carried from Sri Lanka, displays a intense sweet, powdery floral note, and has a softer, more natural scent, closer to the natural scent that you may experience from a Blue Lotus pond. As it enters the drying phase, a complex powdery/resinous/herbaceous note appears upon a delicate, ethereal floral note which weaves throughout the heart note.

The Blue Lotus (also called Sacred Blue Lotus, Blue Lily of the Nile, Blue Water Lily, Egyptian Lotus, Egyptian Lily, Blue Lotus of the Nile) is often represented in ancient Egyptian art. The Blue Lotus was found scattered over Tutankhamen's body when the Pharaoh's tomb was opened in 1922. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but it is believed the Egyptians used it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and hallucinations in addition to its wide use as a general remedy against illness.The perfume of this flower was not only pleasing to the Egyptians, but they saw it as healing as well.

Some people today believe that the Egyptians used this flower as a narcotic both for its healing qualities and as a recreation drug when soaked in wine, though this is a hotly debated topic. The Blue Lotus naturally contains aporphine, apomorphine (a dopamine agonist) and nuciferine, which is an antispasmodic. The Blue Lotus flower was considered to be a magical, sacred flower and it appears as a common motif in numerous ancient Egyptian paintings.
