What is Lotus Oil?


Lotus essential oil is obtained from the flowers of Nelumbo nucifera. Commonly known as Indian Lotus, the plant belongs to the family Nymphaeaceae. It is a perennial aquatic herb of the Indian Origin. The plant has a slender, elongated creeping stem with cup-shaped aerial, flat-floating leaves and white to rosy flowers. Its flowers vary in colour but have a pleasant aroma. The lotus essential oil is extracted from dried lotus flowers through the process of steam distillation. The Lotus flower is considered Sacred in India & China. It has also been reputed for its therapeutic properties.

History of Lotus Oil


Asian cultures have believed lotus flower as a sacred or holy plant for the reason that it can bloom perfectly from dirty, muddy water. Both the lotus plant and flower are considered a sacred symbol in China, India, and Egypt. You can notice pictorial representations near gods and goddesses, symbolizing purity, perfection, and beauty. Different parts of the plant, even including flowers are used in diverse cuisines. Egyptians worshipped different parts of lotus, and have been symbolized in many architectural designs. Lotus essential oil is beneficial for meditation and facilitates deep breathing. It has been believed that the aroma activates Crown Chakra (relating to true consciousness). The lotus essential oil is a gift for those who are seeking spiritual growth.

Colour, Consistency, and Smell of Lotus Oil


  • The colour of lotus oil is pale yellow to light orange.
  • The consistency of lotus oil is medium.
  • The smell of lotus oil is exotic, floral, and slightly herbaceous.

Lotus Oil Benefits that are Sure to Fascinate You


Though the lotus oil benefits are abundant, the most prominent ones include:

  1. Nelumbo nuciferaImproves skin texture - Who doesn't like glowing skin? Skin, being the outermost largest organ in the body, is exposed to pollution, environmental stress, allergens, and other harmful factors. But little did you know that you can have naturally-glowing skin when both your body and mind are healthy. No wonder lotus essential oil is used as one of the key ingredients in many health and skincare products. Not only its aroma but also its therapeutic properties make it an essential component in those products. Traditionally, lotus has been used for getting smooth, gleaming skin. All you have to do is add a drop of lotus essential oil in your body lotions or massage oil. Since Lotus oil is suspected to cause pigmentation, it is always best to add it in a minimal quantity. You can feel a refreshing and cooling effect on your skin while giving a smooth texture over time.
  2. Relieves stress - Hectic lifestyle and an unhealthy diet is the two major factors for stress these days. Moreover, the way your body and mind reacts to a situation also has both positive and negative effects. However, the sweet aroma of lotus oil helps you to overcome stress just by inhaling. The compounds 1,8-cineole, terpinen-4-ol, and linalool present in the oil are responsible for this. To overcome stress, you can either massage the diluted lotus oil or diffuse it in the room using a diffuser.
  3. Lowers blood pressure - When your blood exerts too much pressure on the walls of arteries consistently, it is called high blood pressure. High blood pressure often shows no signs and symptoms. It can go unnoticed even for many years. The apparent cause of high blood pressure is not precisely known, but it may lead to heart failure, stroke, and kidney failure. Fortunately, the compounds present in the lotus essential oil passes through the skin and relaxes the blood vessels. It alleviates high BP, making one feel calm and relaxed. A gentle massage after a cardio workout session would immensely help. Dilute 1 drop of Lotus essential oil in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Massage your body with this diluted lotus essential oil gently. This helps in lowering blood pressure and moisturizing the skin as well.
  4. Aids deep breathing - Taking a few minutes to focus on your breath every day can do wonders for your life. Meditation needs no propaganda today... Inhaling the aroma of lotus essential oil facilitates deep breathing and calmness. However, make sure you do not diffuse the oil in a congested place. It is always best to meditate in a spacious and clean environment.
  5. Lotus flowerGets rid of acne - Acne is one of the most embarrassing problems among people. It is often a hormone-related issue and can occur in any stage of life. In fact, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, inflammation, and scars can occur anywhere in the body. Healthy home-cooked foods, regular exercise, and a periodic gentle massage may help you get rid of acne over time. Avoid processed foods, sugars, and fats for faster healing. The astringent, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties of lotus essential oil make it an excellent remedy for acne. Dilute 1 or 2 drops of lotus essential oil in 2 tablespoons of Jojoba oil. Apply it on the affected regions gently during the night. You can find significant improvement in your skin conditions in a few weeks.
  6. Activates the crown chakra - Both the lotus flower and its essential oil are considered sacred. It is believed that the lotus oil can cleanse one's karma. Inhaling the aroma of lotus oil helps you breathe deep, which, in turn, gives you a sense of serenity and peacefulness. Lotus is considered a symbol of purity and non-attachment. The oil prepares you for spiritual awakening by cleansing and activating your Crown Chakra. You can inhale the aroma of the oil by diffusing it in a room before you meditate. You can also use it in your bath or massage by adding a drop of oil in bathing water or oil.
  7. Keeps you young - Aging is a graceful phenomenon. As we age, we gather more memories, experiences, and life lessons. However, the current lifestyle doesn't allow us to age gracefully. We are bound by work stress, relationship issues, unnecessary worries, and competition, making "ageing" a complicated phenomenon. Tirumular, a mystic, and a writer has written that one who breathes deeply and slowly would live young for a long time. Lotus essential oil helps you breathe deep. Your mind works in coordination with your breath. When you are angry or excited, you can notice that your breath is short and fast. When you are calm, your breath is deep and slow. This doesn’t mean you have to overuse lotus oil. We recommend you to use the oil as a tool to keep your mind young and healthy so that you grow young gracefully.
  8. Overcomes insomnia - When there is anxiety, a human mind primarily worries during the night time. It often sorts out the day problems during the night. Adding to this, the glare from smartphones, computer screen, TVs, and other gadgets suppresses melatonin production, making it difficult for you to sleep. Work stress, improper diet, pain, stress, and anxiety disturb the sleep. If you feel tired all day or if you start worrying about your sleep, then you possibly have Insomnia. But the good news is that lotus oil helps you to ease anxiety during the night. It relaxes your body and mind, letting you sleep peacefully. Blend 1 drop of lotus oil with 3 - 4 drops of lavender oil and 2 tablespoons of carrier oil of your choice. Massage your foot using this mixture. You can also diffuse the oil using a vaporizer or diffuser in the room before sleep time.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils however is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
