When you order 1 mL / gram, expect the bottle to be about 1/4 of the way full and 3 mL approximately 3/4 of the way full!

Dr. Nick Notes
Blue Lotus is a potent aphrodisiac and synergizes well with most essences in product development. The energy that blue lotus presents are very unique vibrations: a playful, sensual essence which opens the heart, third eye and allows inner wisdom to shine. Blue Lotus aromatic notes and energetic are quite unique - calming, unifying, centering - enhances the mood, clears the mind and strengths connection to source. Simply intoxicating essence, considered one of the most rare-precious extracts.
Personally I use Blue Lotus ceremonially and very sparingly. Single drops/dabs can lift an entire bottle of concentrated formula into a new essence. This essence has been used in small concentration added to ormus solution, botanical perfumes, mineral concentrates and psychoactive blends. 1 mL/gram goes a long way and should be treasured/respected. Very concentrated, can use small amounts in a carrier oil for massage or to anoint for ceremonial purposes. This is quite intriguing vaporized as a pure extract or used in a “dab rig” for maximal & balanced psychotropic properties using the least amount of this ultra precious extract.
The effects seem to be very clear with a soft euphoria, inner giddiness & calm. Slightly cannabinoid like properties (similar to Cannabidiol), almost opiating without any body dysphoria or addictive qualities. Gently floaty, uplifting and heavenly to vaporize using the Essential VAAAPP or appropriate technique through a "dabbing unit". We are starting to experiment with an Ultrasonic Blue Lotus Absolute tincture which is quite user-friendly, easy for the end-user to use one drop at a time and is available to our Alchemy Tribe Members here ~
Great and widely used for aromatherapy. Blue Lotus is known as a natural aphrodisiac. Can be used for aromatherapy, promotion of sexual desire, ecstasy, and euphoria. Blue lotus may speed up circulation and enhance connection to source. It’s a wonderful meditation aid, opening chakras (specifically the third eye), aiding one on their spiritual path. Dispels negative emotions and thoughts.
A few drops can be added to a carrier oil to create a massage oil. The active alkaloids in lily and lotus absolutes will absorb through the skin, meaning that both the giver and the receiver of a massage with such an oil will experience gentle psychoactive / mood elevating effects. Absolute oils may also be added to smoking blends to potentiate and enrich the experience – simply add one drop of the essential oil to a dose of the herb to experience its full effects. Lily and lotus essential oils may also be placed in oil warmers to create powerful aromatherapy experiences, and some people also report adding a few drops to wine to create a psychoactive brew (try 1 drop/dab per 4-16 ounces). Finally, if you’re looking for a quick and immediate experience with the power of these plants, simply lift the Absolute to your nose and inhale – you will experience the unmistakable effects within five to ten inhalations.
Good for tantric massages, and stimulates sexual desire and passion. Goes great in teas and cocktails, and is great for massages as the giver and receiver will experience feelings of euphoria. Used in perfumes, bath oils, shower gels, anointing blends, potpourri, facial steam treatments and hair treatments or masks, incense, room fresheners, scented candles and other aromatic products. When used during meditation, it is believed that it can promote heightened spiritual growth, as it soothes and calms, can promote kindness, and gives a better perception of understanding and forgiveness. When used in massage it may be helpful for reducing symptoms of rheumatism, aches and pains. Always blend with a carrier oil before use.

In Ancient Egypt, blue lotus was a symbol of sexuality and was said to promote sexual desire, euphoria, and ecstasy. It is also believed that these entheogens played a big role in the meditative and spiritual rituals of the Egyptians, the Mayans, and many other ancient peoples.
The Blue Lotus was also known in Egypt as a symbol of the universe, fertility, and sexuality. The lotus flower is symbology for the crown chakra. It is prominently 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 there maybe some reason to believe that Egyptians used it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and hallucinations, in addition to its wide use as a general remedy against illness. When Nymphaea caerulea is smoked or drank after being soaked in water or wine, it acted as an intoxicant. The Blue Lotus contain Aporphine, apomorphine (which is dopamine agonist), nuciferine which has antispasmodic properties. The Blue Lotus flower was considered to be a magical, sacred flower and it appears as a common motif in numerous ancient Egyptian paintings. The flower was sometimes used in order to induce and ecstatic state and hallucinations.
