Lotus Absolute, White
(Nelumbo nucifera)


Our exotic White Lotus Absolute has a warm, green, floral aroma that’s bolder and less sweet than Pink Lotus Absolute. White Lotus absolute has welcome traces of indole, a naturally occurring constituent said to lend erotic notes to the aromas of the flowers in which it’s found. Perhaps that’s why we find it to have a sensual quality that works well in many perfume blends.Each of our smaller sizes, ½ dram (1.85ml), ⅝ dram (2.3ml), 5ml, and 10ml, is nicely presented in a gift box.

White Lotus Absolute

White Lotus Absolute from India has  an intense, heady, floral aroma that we would describe as sensual. Even at high dilutions, its unique scent can fill a room. Both White and Pink Lotus Flowers have been considered sacred in Egypt and India and both have been used in Ayurvedic medicine.

According to Dennis Willmont (Natural Healing With Essential Oils, 2003), The ancient Egyptians used parts of the White Lotus in every herbal formula. In the Hindu religion, the white lotus is said to be sacred to Brahma, the god of creation. Some scholars believe that this was the source of the legendary entheogen known as “soma”, but since all parts of the plant are edible, this seems unlikely.

Wikipedia has this to say about the lotus: “Many deities of Asian religions are depicted as seated on a lotus flower. In Buddhist symbolism, the lotus represents purity of the body, speech and mind, as if floating above the murky waters of material attachment and physical desire. According to legend, Gautama Buddha was born with the ability to walk with lotus flowers blooming everywhere he stepped. In Tibet, Padmasambhava, the Lotus-Born, is considered the Second Buddha, having brought Buddhism to that country by conquering or converting local deities.

The divine fragrance of White Lotus Absolute is cherished in Ayurvedic practice, considered sacred to Hindus and historically said to promote serenity and enhance meditation.

USES: Like all solvent-extracted absolutes, White Lotus Absolute is not generally used for aromatherapy but is widely used in perfumery, where it adds a sensual, indolic note to floral compositions and perfumes of the Oriental, fougere and chypre types.  It’s also popular for use in anointing oils and single-note perfumes.

SAFETY INFORMATION: No information found. Always dilute in perfumers’ alcohol or vegetable oil before use on the skin and do not exceed concentrations of 0.5%. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
