Called the "flower of intuition" this is the same blue lotus I use in MOON's Sacred Beauty Mud Mask.
Blue Lotus was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The bright-blue flowers were not only desired for their delightful perfume, but also for the relaxation and heightened awareness they induce. For centuries it has been respected as an ancestral flower known to provoke deep meditation, enhance third eye function and motivate lucid dreaming.
The effects of the Blue Lotus, or Blue Waterlily are euphoric, while cooling down the nervous system and relaxing the whole body.
Reducing stress and calming the mind are essential in maintaining a beautiful complexion and delaying wrinkles.
Sacred Blue Lotus Tea
Recommended Use: To make tea, use about 1 Tbsp of petals per cup of hot water. Infuse almost boiling water into the tea pot, and allow it to infuse for about 5-7min. Remember, overdoing the amount just makes the taste bitter and you loose the subtle taste and feel it provides. You can also add Blue Lotus to a loose tea mix.
