Lilium auratum, native to Japan, is one of the very few true lilies. It is popularly also known as the golden rayed lily of Japan or the goldband lily. The flowers are bowl-shaped white bloooms with golden radial markings and orange spots, but variations in flower colour and markings exist. One sturdy stem may bear up to 12 to 15 resplendent blossoms.
Lily Absolute is one of the most precious and rarest oils in the world and is highly revered for its magnificently heavenly aroma. During the extraction process, fresh, fully opened Lily blooms are plucked from the plant and carefully laid in trays covered with a layer of fatty oil. The aromatic oils from the flower petals slowly migrate to the fatty oil and the process is repeated until the oil is completely saturated with the oil of the Lily. The Lily oil is separated from the oil by washing with alcohol leaving behind only the pure Lily Enfleurage Essential Oil (or Lily Absolute).
Symbol of purity, Lilies have been used in ceremonies and traditions across various cultures since ancient times. In ancient Greece, the bride would wear a crown of lilies during their wedding ceremony symbolizing purity and opulence. Lily Absolute oil is also highly venefrated for its deeply-rooted place in spiritual exploration, particularly renowned for its power to elicit lucid dreaming and dream recall. The fragrance of its blossom has an exhilarating smell that tends to lift one's spirit. The lily flower oil is used in aromatherapy to treat individuals suffering from depression as it tends to help in creating a feeling of exuberance, tranquility and a sense of security.
