We love the lotus range as a tea or used as a smoking blend.
BLUE LOTUS (nymphaea caerulea)
Blue lotus is also referred to as Blue Egyptian Lotus, Blue Egyptian Water Lily, or Sacred Blue Lily, Overall, they do have similar benefits.
There are more claims and anecdotal evidence supporting blue lotus than hard research. As well as a natural aphrodisiac, the benefits are believed to include reducing anxiety and to improve sleep.
As with all three lotuses, they have been linked with Ayurveda, Chinese traditional medicine, and oriental medicine.
Blue lotus is believed to have a calming effect on the body and the nervous system. This helps to reduce anxiety and provides a calming effect. Much in the way that chamomile tea also has this effect.
Blue lotus tea contains the compounds nuciferine and aporphine.
Both of these properties provide antispasmodic effects. These calming effects may also contribute towards a reduction in gastrointestinal issues such as indigestion.
It is believed that blue lotus, in general, can be used to induce lucid dreaming in individuals to enhance their dream state during sleep. Providing a mild sense of tranquility and euphoria, and often used as a stress relief remedy.
RED LOTUS ( nymphaea pubescens)
In Egyptian, Hindu and Buddhist religions Lotus flowers have long been revered, the belief being that this special flower may bring one prosperity, fertility, purity and vitality.
In Nepal and India the flowers of Nymphaea pubescens are used in treating diabetes, liver disorders, urinary problems, menorrhagia, blenorrhagia; they are also used as tonic and aphrodisiac.
WHITE LOTUS ( nymphaea lotus)
It is thought that the Egyptians used white lotus as a key to good health, sex and re-birth.
The plant is regarded as an aphrodisiac for both men and women.
It is thought to be a tonic richer than ginseng, pain reliever richer than arnica, circulation stimulant richer than ginkgo biloba and sexual stimulant richer than Viagra.
This plant should not be consumed if the person takes anti-diabetes medication such as insulin or else the blood sugar levels may go down to a dangerous level.
