Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) Organic Flower Powder


SKU: N/A Category:


This product contains powdered blue lotus flowers imported from Thailand. The flowers do lose their color upon powdering because they contain the entire flower (Petals, Stamens and Crown). But the powder comes from the same material as our crushed organic lotus flower. Most usues for powder, such as making extracts, tinctures and capsues do not require the aesthetic appeal of the whole flower.  But we offer a full variety lotus products for any need. WE ALSO OFFER VARIOUS OTHER LOTUS / NYMPHAEA PRODUCTS, INCLUDING SEEDS, STAMENS, PETALS AND EXTRACTS. CONTACT FOR BLUE LOTUS WHOLESALE

Nymphaea Caerulea, which is a synonym for the more proper nymphaea nouchali var. caerulea, derives from the banks of the Nile River and has many similarities to nelumbo nucifera. Because of these similarities, the two are frequently confused. However, nymphaea caerulea, which is frequently called blue lotus, is in fact a water lily and not a lotus. The fact that they are both referred to as “sacred” and have similar narcotic and sedative properties coupled with the fact that nelumbo nucifera actually does have a blue variety adds to the confusion. Like nelumbo nucifera, nymphaea is symbolically significant, and it has frequently been depicted in ancient Egyptian art and temples. It is very likely that caerulea is the legendary psychoactive lotus depicted in Homer’s Odyssey. Used similarly, the active principles of nymphaea caerulea are reportedly analogous to those in nelumbo nucifera petals, which is said to produce feelings of relaxation, clarity, lightness and well-being. The  nymphaea caerulea seeds are drastically smaller than those of nelumbo. Nymphaea caerulea petals are also skinnier which makes them appear pointy and triangular, whereas nelumbo nucifera petals are fatter and rounder. The cool blue hue of nymphaea caerulea flowers also makes the plant seem mystical and surreal, so it is no wonder it has been chosen for symbolic significance throughout history. This product contains high quality dried nymphaea caerulea flowers, meaning that they have retained their vibrant color and sweet aroma after drying. We have encountered other products that are brownish and dirty or that have insects. Our blue lotus flowers are colorful and have a good scent.
