The water lily Nymphaea lotus ‘Red’ (sometimes known as N. zenkeri ‘Red’) can be found growing in its native habitat of tropical Africa in bodies of stagnant water ranging in size from lakes to small, temporary pools. It has been without question the most popular species of its genus to be kept in home aquaria. Bulbs and juvenile plants are available far and wide, sometimes for sale under the name ‘Red Tiger Lotus’.
These flowers have been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs as well as Egyptian depictions. Said to be used to help one to reach transcendent states of consciousness and enter trance-meditative states, but it was likely used as incense and symbolically as well.
Lily Flowers make a great addition to any smoke blend and are great for use in teas as well. Our flowers are absolutely top-notch Lotus specimen, these are sustainably harvested in Thailand and are Organically grown without the use of harmful pesticides. These are very beautiful specimen, and the lessons this teacher provides have been astounding to us here at Eternity in a Box.
As with all of our Teacher herbs, there is much to learn here just by being in the presence of this plant! We recommend meditating beside your plants, possibly atop a meditative alter or as an incense. Lily Flowers can also be consumed, but please be respectful and get to know how this plant affects you before working with too much. Very relaxing effects which are subtly dreamy, but so very ‘connecting’ and coherent.
