About our name:   The White Lotus (nelumbo nucifera), a sacred symbol of Indian cultural heritage, sprouts in muddy lakes and ponds, its stalks rising from the murky waters to unfurl magnificent ornamental blossoms that reach for the sun.  To White Lotus Home, the flower is an allegory of the human condition’s triumph over chemicals and toxins in the environment as we work to enlighten and inspire others of the benefits of handcrafted organic and natural products, thereby partaking of the White Lotus flower’s endless destiny.
