Buddhist Lotus Flower (Padma) According to Buddhist principles, the heart of a person who has not attained enlightenment is the embodiement of a lotus that has not blossomed yet. Once enlightenment has been reached their heart becomes a lotus in bloom. This is why depictions of Buddha often show him seated upon an open lotus flower.
Did you know, the Lotus Flower is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free-radical damage? It has the unique property of inhibiting the release of cutaneous neuropeptides - the molecules that cause our skin to flare, making it ideal for calming and soothing reactive skin. That's why we use it in our Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic!
