A Millaflower

The Millaflower was an especially aromatic flower from Naboo, and one of their more exotic and lucrative exports.[1]

Physical characteristicsEdit

Growing wild in isolated valleys on Naboo, the millaflower was a ground flower that came in several bright colors, with red and blue being the most common.[1] Popular with the native Naboo and Gungans, the flower was commonly cultivated in flower-boxes and gardens, and when gifted was culturally considered to honor the recipient by signifying respect.[1]

Pharmacological usesEdit

Despite their great beauty, the millaflower was primarily valued for an airborne chemical that they exuded, which caused most oxygen breathing species to feel at ease.[1] The more flowers concentrated in an area, the more pronounced this effect became - with a field of millaflowers in an enclosed space producing a mild tranquilizing effect.[1] For this reason, the plant was very popular for use in aromatherapy.[1]

When extracted and distilled, this natural chemical becomes an organic tranquilizer with a bitter chalky flavor, powerful enough to kill if administered in sufficient dosage.[1] For this reason, Naboo law prohibits anyone but licensed drug manufacturers from producing the extract, and anyone but a licensed pharmacist from buying it.[1] Prescribed by many homeopathic physicians, both plant and extract were a major Naboo export, with the doctors of Kuat commonly known to prescribe the extract for everything ranging from relaxation to muscle aches.[1]

Illegal useEdit

Despite the flower's myriad uses, illicit uses existed as well.[1] Most notably, the drug could be used to intentionally intoxicate or kill if administered in a high enough dose.[1] Typically, those wishing to administer the drug secretly would use food or wine to mask the taste, though in doses of three or more, the taste was detectable regardless.[1] Under the influence, onset could take up to an hour, with a drugged sentient feeling a continual increase in well being until the full effects of the drug kicked in.[1] In a standard human, the full effects could be felt for up to ten hours, and varied in severity depending on dose.[1] Commonly, a single dose produced relaxation, two made a sentient uninhibited, three doses intoxication, four doses a deep sleep and unconsciousness, five doses paralyzation, and six doses producing heart failure and death.[1]

In addition to the extract's potentially deadly use, some exported plants found their way into the hands of illicit drug manufacturers, who experimented with the extract as a potential spice.[1]

HistoryEdit

Due to the dangerous nature of the plant, as well as its potential to be used as a spice, the millaflower went under review in 32 BBY by a Senate subcommittee. Though, at the time, both plant and extract were legal everywhere, despite the extract being controlled on Naboo.[1]

Soon after 32 BBY, the Gungans transported millaflowers and other vegetables and animals to the moon of Ohma-D'un to try and establish an ecosystem. Most of the flora and fauna of Ohma-D'un, however, was destroyed by Separatists during the Battle of Ohma-D'un.
