Blue Lotus Flowers are now available in Open Flowers, Open Flat Flowers, Closed Flower Buds and the NEW Petal & Stamen Tea.
These Open Flat Flowers have been carefully dried in their open position, making them beautiful to look at. They are perfect to place on on the top of a cup of tea, or on the top a gift or other offering. Note that not all of the flowers are perfect, once dried some petals will fall off, but I will make sure to package as many good ones as possible.
There is no difference between the Open and Closed Flowers apart from when they were picked. The Closed Flowers are picked at night, the Open Flowers are picked during the day.
To make a cup of Blue Lotus Tea simply drop one or two flowers, or a teaspoon of Petal & Stamen Tea into a cup of hot water and allow it to steep until cool enough to drink. Blue Lotus Tea is a natural aphrodisiac, sleep aid, and anxiety reliever.
Important Note: Each packet of the Dried Flowers will contain mostly whole flowers but there will be some loose petals and stamens. This makes the best tea, but if you have a preference, please let me know in a comment when you purchase.
Blue lotus flower (Nymphaea caerulea) is a psychoactive plant, also known as blue Egyptian lotus, blue water lily, and sacred blue lily.
It’s been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac, sleep aid, and anxiety reliever.
It holds cultural importance, and images of the flower have been found on ancient papyri and on the walls of tombs. Historians believe it was once used in Egypt as a traditional medicine to treat an array of conditions and disorders like anxiety and insomnia.
It’s known as an entheogenic drug, which is a mind-altering substance believed to alter one’s consciousness in a spiritual or religious manner. This term is commonly used instead of “hallucinogenic” or “psychedelic”.
Blue Flag’s name is derived from the beautiful and colourful blue petals of its flower. The Native American tribes were the first to use Blue Flag root in herbal preparations. Used to treat diseases of the liver thanks to its high iridium content. Blue Flag root taken as tea can be an effective laxative and diuretic. Also effective as a topical medicine, it can reduce inflammation of the skin and may decrease the symptoms of skin infections. Also great for treating burns, bruises and wounds.
The fresh flowers are said to purify an area and to attract the qualities of wisdom, faith, and courage. Sacred to Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, to Juno, and to the sphere of Venus, iris is a classic Goddess herb which brings purity, wisdom, courage, and faith.
