Blends well with: Lotus White Absolute blends well with generally all oils, though it seems to work best with other floral oils.
Aromatic Scent: Lotus White Absolute has an exotic floral aroma with slightly herbaceous and medicinal top notes. It is very similar to Lotus Pink.
History: Lotus White was sacred to Saraswati - the goddess of learning, knowledge, and wisdom.
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.
