Red Lotus is a large lotus with reddish pink flowers that fade to pink as they age. 

She is a member of the waterlily family and is known commonly as Indian Red Waterlily. It is a close relative of Sacred Blue Waterlily (nymphaea caerulea), which is known commonly as Blue Lotus.

Aside from being visually similar, all these flowers have similar alkaloids, apomorphine and nuciferine, that help release dopamine and serotonin to influence our mood and produce mild psychoactive effects that may induce euphoria.

These effects are the main reason the flower was brewed into a tea for many different kinds of celebrations.

Nelumbo nucifera is intimately linked with the Buddhist religion, with Red symbolizing life force and preservationIn Vajrayana buddhism, meditating on the color red transforms the delusion of attachment into the wisdom of discernment.

Very earthy and bitter in taste, energetically it moves in a downward motion, directly connecting to the depths of the womb down into the marrow of the Earth, making it a wonderful ally and support during luteal and bleeding phases of your cycle.
