This is a high quality, organic, shade-dried version of the Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile Dried Flowers and Tops that other sites sell for twice as much. A decoction or wine-infusion (typically about 7 grams per bottle) has been reported to have pleasant qualities, heightened when combined when the petals are jointly smoked in a pipe or rolled into a cigarette.
Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lily) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Lily) was worshiped as a visionary plant and was a symbol for the origins of life. Traditionally, Nymphaea caerulea was drank after being soaked in warm water or wine, while a cigarette made of the dried flowers was smoked. These are flowers and tops only and are suspected to contain aporphine and nuciferine, natural alkaloids.
These are WHOLE organic blue lotus flower petals, hand-picked from a single pond, on a small farm in Nepal. Nelumbo nucifera (Sacred Lotus Petals) have become etched in folklore because of a fabulous people who supposedly occupied the north coast of Africa and lived on the lotus, which brought forgetfulness and happy indolence. The Sacred Lotus is often steeped in wine or tea. It is said to produce a "feeling of joy that permeates the whole body, emanating from every cell" that is "delightfully wonderful and lasts for some time."
Sacred Lotus contains lotusine, demethyl coclaurine, neferin, and nuciferine.
These are WHOLE organic Blue Lotus Flower Stamens, hand-picked from a single pond, on a small farm in Nepal. It takes a large amount of flowers to produce just a handful of stamens, so these are offered seasonally, and often disappear quickly. Lotus stamens are the strongest part of the Blue Lily plant, and are often referred to as the "poor man's" saffron. Only 1 teaspoon per cup of tea or 2 tablespoons per bottle of wine. Blue Lotus, in general, is said to produce a "feeling of joy that permeates the whole body, emanating from every cell" that is "delightfully wonderful and lasts for some time."
This action of the Lotus flower is true of animals as well as human beings. Lotus offers one of the highest vibrations of any flower. As well as stimulating spiritual evolvement it acts as a "booster" to other flower essences intensifying and spiritualizing their effects. Lotus essence acts on all levels encouraging a gentle unfolding of the highest potential within the animal.
White Lotus is closely related to Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus), which was worshipped as a sacred plant and was a symbol for the origins of life. White Lotus is extremely similar to Blue Lotus, but because it is in less demand and less colorful, we can offer it as a less expensive, but extremely popular alternative.
