The organic lotus product is the Japanese persimmon which looks much like a huge, smooth, bald peach. I saw it develop in gardens in the Peloponnese area of Lakonia, Greece. By and way, I'm not an fan of this particular natural lotus oil, it's dry and leaves the mouth feeling as if it still needs water. This smells similar to coffee.
Having tried this natural food, it's hard to believe that Odysseus and his traveler team were so enthusiastic about this. Obviously, it is fair to believe that the ancient Greek saint remained close to his country, but he is far-fetched, considering the number of years that it evidently took him to return home after his arrival.All things considered, he went to Asia and experienced the sacrosanct lotus. The holy lotus, so Homer wrote in Book 9 of the Odyssey, made Odysseus and his supporters overlook the reason for their excursion, which is the reason a few pundits have proposed that the lotus eaters participated in the opium poppy.
In any case, on the off chance that you examine the seed cases you will see they look like those of the opium poppy. Each case holds around 24 seeds. In Cambodia, these are esteemed as a scrumptious bite!
The lotus plant is likewise esteemed for its therapeutic properties, as it contains nuciferine and aporphine, which are morphine-like substances. This shows the rest of Lethe likely could be incited if the plant is ingested. No big surprise Odysseus excessively so long to return home.
Herodotus, the Dad of History, believed that the lotus eaters were occupants of the Libyan beach front zone. Be that as it may, Herodotus isn't generally a dependable source. In the antiquated world eating the product of the lotus was accepted to cause carelessness. Regardless of whether this was previously or after Homer composed the Odyssey is available to address.
Maybe the lotus eaters never truly existed. Be that as it may, they have positively caught the minds of ages. The English writer, Alfred Ruler Tennyson, composed a sonnet The Lotos - Eaters about them and the possibility of them additionally caught Edith Wharton's creative mind. as can be found in her novel, 'The Time of Honesty'. Aficionados of Rick Riordan books will without a doubt review the topic of the Lotus Eaters in his 'Camp Half-Blood Narratives.'
In the event that you are sufficiently interested to attempt the Greek lotus, head to the Peloponnese in fall. I have seen the organic product still on trees in winter (nobody appears to reap it). Be that as it may, you should request that authorization attempt the lotus organic product. as it is developed in the nurseries of private homes.
