This Flower, also known as - Nymphaea Caerulea, Sacred water lotus, Lotus, Sacred Lotus, Sacred Water Lily.

Origins:

Its original habitat may have been along the Nile and other parts of East Africa. It spread more widely in ancient times, including to the Indian Subcontinent, especially Sri Lanka and Thailand.

We source our flowers from lakes in Sri Lanka where they naturally grow in the mud. No fertilizers or pesticides are used. All the flowers are dried by using shaded sun light. We do not use artificial heat to dehydrate.

The sacred water lotus has been used in the Orient as a medicinal herb for well over 1,500 years, and is also an important religious, artistic, and folklore icon. It was brought to India from Egypt, where it was associated with the sun: the lotus. Like the sun, it opens in the morning and closes at night. It is also associated with the god Horus, who was often depicted sitting or standing on the lotus, like Brahma and the Buddha after him. In Egypt the flower was blue and white, and was seen as a flower of resurrection, and used in funeral rights and depicted in the artwork in tombs. In India it represents birth and rebirth; Brahma was born seated on a lotus flower.


Properties and uses:

The flower petals and leaves are typically made into a tea or decoction for internal  or external use. Often use for lucid dreaming.

They may also be used as a garnish, smoked, floated in soups, and the fresh petals are used as a wrap in Asia. It is also said that the petals steeped in wine or tea have a calming effect.
