Egyptians worshipped Blue Lily as a sacred plant and a symbol for the origins of life, rising from the mud this flower of pure and clean beauty. The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness. A Blue Lily sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a young god, a Divine Child. Light streamed from the Divine Child to banish universal darkness. This child god was the Creator, the Sun God, the source of all life. When the Pharaoh known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Blue Lily flowers. And both Amenhotep IV and Ramses III are known to have had them growing purely for their ornamental value in their palace gardens.
Blue Lily was traditionally used to relieve pain, increase memory, increase circulation, promote sexual desire, and create a sense of well being. According to recent studies, Blue Lily may contain health-giving phytosterols and bioflavonoids.

These seeds and pods are picked from the same single pond on the small farm in Nepal that the Blue Lotus petals and stamens are from. They have a rich blue hue, and are completely organic. These seeds have even been known to sprout years after they have been picked, but are most often used along with their pods to make seed tinctures.
The lotus is an Asian water lily known for the delicate beauty of its water flowers. It possesses an amazing ability to flourish in a variety of environments ranging from clear ponds to muddy marshes. It is also known for its exceptionally hearty seed pods, which often plant themselves far from its source, bringing the beauty of the lotus blossoms everywhere.
Most seeds remain quiescent during a cold or dry season and germinate only with the coming of favorable growing conditions. Seeds that require special treatment to germinate, even when presented with adequate water and oxygen and favorable temperatures, are said to exhibit dormancy. Seeds with thick or waxy coats, which inhibit the entry of water and oxygen, may remain in a prolonged quiescent state. Seeds of the Indian lotus can germinate 200 years after they are shed. Most seeds, however, lose the ability to germinate within several years of shedding. Following the return of the rains, primitive peoples witnessed the rise of the undefiled water lily from the bottom of dried-up watercourses and considered the living blooms symbols of immortality and resurrection. The ancient Egyptians from the 4th dynasty greatly valued the sacred lotus, N. totus, in religious ceremonies and funerals.
