Longmen Mountain Sacred Lotus Flower Pollen Powder
Botanically, the Sacred Lotus is known as Nelumbo nucifera, a name almost as beautiful as the flower itself. In Buddhist tradition, the Lotus flower represents the transformation obtained through spiritual purification and enlightenment. Offered for its deep nutrition, adaptogenic effects, and for containing the essence of the Sacred Lotus Flower, it is an important Chinese herbal medicine used for detoxification. The entire Lotus Flower plant has served as an important source of food source and traditional medicine for centuries within Asia and the Middle East. The Sacred Lotus Flower holds a wealth of mystique, and has long been revered as a symbol of enlightenment and purity. This is due partly because of the physical nature of how the plant grows: It is rooted in the mud, growing through the water, to blossom on the surface, which is a metaphor for personal spiritual growth.
This is an ideal concentrated form of the Sacred Lotus Flower, perfect for those looking for a true relaxation, lucid dreaming and spiritual enhancement.
