Description

The blue lotus flower, also known as “Nymphaea nouchali”, is a striking aquatic plant with vibrant blue petals that gracefully float atop the water’s surface. Goodfolks brings you this magical form in ceremonial grade – organic certified, dried whole, powder or tea bags.

Throughout the ages, the blue lotus has held deep cultural and spiritual significance in many societies. In ancient Egypt, it was revered as a symbol of rebirth and was often depicted in art and mythology. The flower is also believed to have medicinal properties and was used in traditional herbal remedies and spiritual ceremonies.

In Sri Lanka, the blue lotus holds a special place in the nation’s identity and heritage. Known locally as “nil manel,” it is celebrated as the national flower and is deeply ingrained in Sri Lankan culture and history. The blue lotus features prominently in religious rituals, art, literature, and folklore, symbolizing purity, spirituality, and prosperity. Sri Lanka’s many lakes and waterways are abundant with the enchanting blue lotus, further emphasizing its close connection to the soul of the island. It thrives in the country’s tropical climate, adorning water bodies with its breathtaking blooms and captivating fragrance.

Island of Lakes and Lotus

Goodfolks Blue Lotus are sourced from the many waterways that make Sri Lanka truly Resplendent. Much of these are in the form of lakes dating back thousands of years. Community groups working with Goodfolks, work their way through these waterways in wooden rafts to collect these beautiful flowers in a surreal and beautiful experience.

Health benefits of the Blue Lotus Flower from Sri Lanka

Blue lotus (Nil Manel), also known as ‘Nymphaea caerulea’, has been traditionally used for centuries for its potential health benefits. It is believed to possess mild sedative properties, aiding in relaxation and stress relief, and promoting mood enhancement and restful sleep. Additionally, blue lotus may have analgesic effects, providing relief from mild pain, and it is sometimes considered an aphrodisiac, enhancing libido and sexual pleasure. Rich in antioxidants, blue lotus may help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, while also offering digestive support.
