Item Description

Blue Lotus Sourced From China

doTERRA Blue Lotus is sourced from Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China and Haikou, Hainan Island, China. While the plant grows wild in these areas, our blue lotus is grown and harvested in cultivation ponds with new seedlings being nurtured alongside the more mature flowers to ensure continuous health and supply of flowers. After about three to four months of growing in the pond, the blue lotus will bloom, enabling approximately three to four harvests per year, which usually take place between March and November. In Guangzhou, the blue lotus ponds were built entirely from scratch, specifically to source Blue Lotus for doTERRA. The undertaking was led by a husband-and-wife duo who also produce several other oils for doTERRA from this area of the world. All of the flowers from the Guangzhou ponds are used to create doTERRA Blue Lotus Touch. In Haikou, blue lotus ponds already existed for the fresh flower market, however our partner helped this pond to expand. Here, 30% of the flowers are now used for doTERRA Blue Lotus while 70% of the flowers still go to the flower market. The income farmers receive from the flower market can vary quite a lot in stability, making the addition of Blue Lotus extract production a great source of reliable, consistent revenue for local farmers.

Caring for the plant is labor intensive with men and women farmers working in waist-high water to reach them. Fish living in the pond are regularly checked to determine the cleanliness of the water. Since the ponds are pesticide free, harvesters manually remove snails who can invade the water, lay eggs and start eating the leaves. In Guangzhou, they also use the distilled biomass of camellia flowers in the ponds as a natural way of reducing infestation of snails. When it’s time to harvest, the farmers bring floating baskets with them into the ponds to collect the flowers. Harvesters can usually collect up to 220 lbs. (100 kg) of flowers per day and are paid immediately via bank transfer based on the weight. Once harvested, the flowers are stored in a cool room and transported in a refrigerated truck to the extraction facility within 24 hours of harvest. After extraction, the leftover biomass is used as mulch for litsea trees, which also provide essential oil for doTERRA.
