Lotus is a divine aquatic plant that is beneficial for the mind, body, and spirit from its nutrient filled roots to its blooming petals that break the water’s surface.
It is broadly believed that lotus oil encourages tranquility, reflection, and meditation and to help activate and cleanse the pineal gland and refresh one’s karma. Lotus oil provides a basis for spiritual, mental and physical well-being.
The plant lotus has a wide connection with the Hindu mythology as it is associated with the goddess of wealth. Lotus oil was utilized by ancient Egyptians during funerary ceremonies to help guide kings and priests to higher spiritual levels. This is because the symbol of the lotus flower seems to perfectly represent the motion of energy as it moves throughout the body from the root the crown chakra through the pineal gland. Hence, it’s also associated with the powers of creation. Ancient Romans used lotus essential oil to treat respiratory problems such as asthma.
