Flower Essence: “Lotus is the foremost flower essence on this planet and is king of the flower essence on this planet and is king of the flower essence.” The lotus grows in the muddy water of still ponds and lakes. It has its roots deep in the soil under water. The long, cylindrical stalk passes through the water and rises above the water surface. The magnificent blossom unfolds gradually one petal at a time, till full-bloomed in the morning when the sun’s rays touch the flower.
