Many ancient cultures believed that eating the petals of the Lotus would produce an overwhelming sense of well-being and wholeness. While we now know that this is not entirely accurate, we do know that the Lotus has some significant health benefits, both for skin and for digestive health. The lotus flower is used for natural beauty as it is a source of many essential vitamins and minerals. Drinking a tea made from the petals can be considered an alternative to taking a multivitamin.

Containing protein, iron, Vitamin C, phosphorus, and linoleic acid, lotus flowers promote healing, fight inflammation, diminish some signs of aging, regulate the skin’s moisture, and provide necessary antioxidants to the skin.

Lotus, when used in cosmetic applications, is often used to restore damaged areas to their previous beauty. Because Lotus is a source of many beneficial vitamins and minerals, it aids in the production of new, healthy cells, as it delivers those nutrients to the site of the irritation. Because it promotes regeneration of new skin cells, it allows older skin cells to be sloughed away, revealing a new layer of more radiant-looking skin.

Along with this, the lotus is a natural anti-inflammatory. When prepared as a tea, it can heal ulcers and other stress-related conditions, throughout the intestinal track. Used in cosmetics, it can fight redness, irritation, swelling, and infections like acne.

As the skin ages, some of the connective structures and even the cells themselves, lose their elasticity. When this happens, they are more prone to damage and less able to retain their youthful appearance. Lotus can help to restore the look of healthy, elastic skin, by making connective tissue and cell walls stronger and more pliable.

Aiding in circulation, applying lotus to the face can help even the look of dark marks, from acne, from age, and even freckles. It is especially potent when lightening the appearance of dark under eye circles. Increased blood flow helps to flush away toxins and other particles that become deposited in the skin and that make it look uneven and discolored. Better blood flow also means better cell growth, as the tissues of skin are supplied with the oxygen and other nutrients they need for respiration and multiplication.

The natural antioxidants in the lotus’s root, leaves, and petals can stop the signs of aging in their tracks. By soothing and hydrating the skin, it is naturally more resilient to the signs of aging that can cause the skin to look older.
