We are very happy to finally be able to bring you this fine certified organic Sacred Lotus stamens.  This plant is scared to many religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism, and is representative of enlightenment and divinity.

The Sacred Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera), some times misnomered as a water Lilly, is sacred to the religions of Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, Bahá'í and is mentioned in the Bible when the Lord speaks to Job. It is widely considered to be a symbol of divine perfection. It is one of only two aquatic plants in the family Nelumbonaceae.  It is the national flower of both India and Vietnam.

While many parts of the plant can be used as food and medicine, special regard is given to the dried stamens, which are traditionally made into a tea known in Chinese medicine as  liánhuā cha.  The plant contains alkaloids including lotusine, demethyl coclaurine, neferin, and nuciferine.
