Lotus Essential Oil Natural & Pure -- 10 Gram Bottle
The lotus flower is a sacred flower. The beauty of the Lotus Flower is used as an analogy to Krishna's beautiful lotus eyes. When devotees see the lotus flower or smell the scent of the lotus flower they immediately remember Krishna.
The lotus represents not only beauty but also non-attachment. Although the roots of the lotus are embedded in mud, the flower itself floats on water without getting wet or muddy and this represents non-attachment. It’s also a flower associated with many deities particularly Lord Brahma and Lord Krishna (The Lotus-Eyed One).
In the medical arena, the lotus has been used by the Chinese to treat a host of ailments from diarrhea to bleeding ulcers and mushroom poisoning. The Romans used lotus essential oil to treat asthma and ailments related to the upper respiratory tract. In India it was traditionally used to treat fever, cholera and fungal infections, among other ailments.
In aromatherapy lotus essential oil is used to heal the mind and spirit. It gives rise tranquility of mind and spirit and is suitable for use in meditation. Depending on the quality of the oil, a drop or two is sufficient for a single session of aromatherapy.
Lotus essential oil can be added to a bath or diffused in the air to bring about an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Ideally, this should be done by blending it with other essential oils to tone down its intensity.
