Lotus is effective both on its own and when combined with other herbs. 

It is often confused with water lily, and although the plants are often sold interchangeably, it is important to know the difference. The pink and white lotus sold by Zhi Herbals are true lotus plants. Our red and blue lotus are in the water lily family, although they are often referred to as lotus and used as such. Most plants referred to as lotus will have a similar effect, with only subtle differences between them.

Typical Preparations

Taken internally as a tea, powder, capsules, or extract. Can also be smoked.
