This is exquisite organic material, containing only the fragrant non-woody parts of the flower.
Please read this description so you can fully understand what this product is and what other Blue Lotus Flowers for sale online actually are.
At this time Blue Lotus and other water lilies ( Nymphaeaceae ) are generally being offered in three forms:
Crushed: The whole flower is crushed and dried.
Cut: The whole flower is cut and dried.
Whole: The flower is dried whole.
But what exactly are you getting?
In general, ( in weight ) non-processed whole and crushed/cut Blue Lotus Flowers will contain 50% petals and stamens ( the fragrant purple and yellow parts of the flower ) and 50% young seed pods ( a hard woody part of the flower that the petals and stamens are attached to ). When allowed to grow the petals and stamens will fall off and the seed pod will become what is called Blue Lotus Fruit.
At an early stage of growth ( and others ) the seed pod is considered valuable and is known to contain a high % of essential oils. However, ( in general ) it takes longer to steep, is slightly bitter if someone is making tea, and if used as incense is less fragrant and harsher.
This material is created by hand processing Whole Blue Lotus Flowers and separating the petals and stamens from the young seed pod and removing it.
