Blue Lotus Petals (Nelumbo Nucifera) - 1oz

OUT OF STOCK - DO NOT ORDER!These are WHOLE organic blue lotus flower petals, hand-picked from a single pond, on a small farm in Nepal. The sacred lotus was once thought to be a water-lily, but is now recognized to be a highly modified eudicot in its own family Nelumbonaceae of the order Proteales. Nelumbo nucifera (Sacred Lotus Petals) have become etched in folklore in the story of the Lotus Eaters, a fabulous people who supposedly occupied the north coast of Africa and lived on the lotus. The sacred blue lotus flower was also what Ulysses' crew smoked after coming ashore following years at sea. Sacred lotus contains lotusine, demethyl coclaurine, neferine, and nuciferine. Some believe that the lotus came to India from Egypt. Later, Buddhism borrowed the flower from Hinduism. In Buddhist painting and sculpture, whenever Buddha is shown delivering an important sermon, he is shown sitting on a lotus pedestal. Buddhist scriptures enumerate fragrance, purity, delicateness and beauty as the attributes of the lotus. According to yoga and tantra, there are seven lotus wheels in the human body. The lotus is the object of meditation in tantric Buddhism. The lotus motif has also been extensively used in the shrines, art, architecture, and sculpture of the Jains. The Ionic order of architecture of the ancient Greeks is an offshoot of the Assyrian and Phoenician forms which used the lotus in their designs. The lotus is one of the world's most celebrated flowers. From time immemorial to the present day, it has always been found in folklore, religion and the arts in one form or the other. The term lotus is applied in general to several species of plants. About 100 lotus species are found in temperate regions of Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The pink- and purple-colored variety widely used in religion is Nelumbo nucifera. Scriptures tell us that it first bloomed with the creation of the universe. Over the centuries it has lost none of its allure. Nelumbo nucifera is also an edible species. Its seeds are roasted to make popcorn-like puffs called makhanas. The plant's rhizomes are a source of lotus meal which is rich in starch. A North American lotus species, Nelumbo pentapetala, was a source of starch for the American Indians. A number of wild animals feed on the plant, and fish find refuge in its underwater stalks. This product is not intended or sold for ingestion by humans or animals. It is sold only for use as an incense or for smoking. WARNING: Smoking anything, including herbal products of any kind, are harmful to the body.
