Physical Properties*:
Known as the Sacred Lotus, Bean of India, Chinese Water Lily and by many other local tribal names, this plant has a long history of honoured use, dating back to Egyptian times and potentially beyond. The flowers have been used to treat diarrhea, cholera, fever and hyperdipsia (intense thirst). It contains Neferine, an alkaloid unique to Blue Lotus, that is sedative, anti-depressant, anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-thrombotic (prevents blood clots), anti-inflammatory, anti-arrhythmic (regulates heart rhythms), anti-diabetic, somewhat anti-obesogenic and even anti-HIV. The herb can regulate the 5-HT serotonin receptors, preserve the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the face of toxins, and attenuate learning deficits. It has been shown to prevent atherosclerosis (fat build up in the arteries),  be hepaprotective (preventing liver fibrosis) and also improve eye health. Apomorphine is another alkaloid isolated from Nucifera species, apomorphine is used in allopathic medicine to treat erectile dysfunction.  

Emotional/Spiritual Properties:
The lotus, is a dream herb, that, whilst being a delicate looking flower with a soft taste, is firm in its action. It rests the consciousness into the heart, pulls you in to watery, subconscious realms where one is washed clean in pools of true desires, to then grow up again, in to the petals and unfurl consciousness through the heart to imbue the mind with serenity and clarity, inviting the crown to open to divine inspiration. The plant bestows the most invocational beauty…. This herb will enable one to give gracious space and attention to the callings of the heart. It imparts a deep peace, wherein one can obtain sight of the higher callings of life, and the vision for an ascendant humanity that is trying to flow and manifest through all of us.

Recommended Dose: 7-11 drops 2-3 times a day... 33 drops or all at once ;)
