The Blue Lotus absolute oil is extracted from the Blue Lotus plant(Nymphaea caerulea) by the complex method called solvent extraction. This plant is also known as the Blue Egyptian or sacred blue lily.
The perfumes were made out of this plant in the primitive age. This blue lotus is native to north and central Africa. It is blue in color with immediate sweet and appealing fragrance which is highly valued. The absolute oil is scarcely soluble in water and alcohols. The oil is anti- spasmodic in nature. The Egyptian blue lotus fluid is concentrated by the high proportion of aporphine and nuciferine.
