A small but beautiful spiritual gift.
Blue Lotus is a tropical lily that features blue star shaped flowers, native to the Nile delta. The seeds and root are also edible. Many associated medicinal properties. Widely used among other lilies within Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese medicine.
Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. When the Pharao known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Nymphaea Caerulea flowers. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but there is mounting evidence that suggests that ancient Egyptians used the plant to induce ecstatic states, stimulation, and visions, as well as as a medicine (Voogelbreinder 2009, 247).
It is a psychoactive plant often associated with the third eye, intuition, and visionary states. We love to brew cacao using the blue lotus infused tea as below.
