egyptian lotus flower
Lotus flower smells very mysterious. Lotus, sometimes called a water lily, is a beautiful aquatic flower used by the Ancient Egyptians and many middle eastern people for thousands of years. It was often reserved for royalty. My soap is made with real lotus, 100% olive oil, castor oil and a little coconut oil. I add bentonite clay to give this soap a luxurious and creamy feel. It lathers nicely and washes off beautifully and leaves skin feeling fresh, smooth, and soft. The lotus flower is indeed a beautiful flower both inside and out. The flower has even been used as a sleep aid, to reduce anxiety and as a stress reliever. It's an amazing little flower!
Numerous studies attest to the lotus flower's anti-inflammatory properties. Many parts of lotus flower has long been used in natural and herbal medicine to treat for inflammation and healing of wounds. In skincare, lotus flower extract works intensively to sooth irritation and redness.
According to the Egyptian Hieroglyphs the coveted fragrance of Cleopatra was the sweet & intoxicating smell of blue lotus. The wonderful fragrance of the sacred blue lotus flower was to the ancient Egyptians the perfume of the sweat of the god Ra, the divine essence.
