Some lamps don't make any blue. I suggest you leave it naturally yellow.

If you really want the blue channel, try taking a second exposure with a
blue filter. You might pick up some fluorescence from slight purple and
UV emissions. You can then mix that in to the blue channel of the first
photo. It will probably look very weird.
