Snow Lotus: Costus Saussurea Displaying great strength through adversity "Mu Xiang" or "Snow Lotus" grows only in the rocky mountains and glaciers near the snowline about 5,000 meters above sea level and is said to promote the movement of Qi and can be used as an aphrodisiac. The legendary snow lotus has magical ability to prolong life—the inhabitants of Xinjiang have some of the longest life spans in China and the province is home to about four thousand centenarians. Saffron: Crocus Sativus Still the most expensive spice in the world and worth its weight in gold, Saffron has been revered since ancient times. Strewn in ancient Greece and Roman courts and theatres the treasured spice was sprinkled on the streets of Rome for Nero's entrance to the city. Adulterers of the treasured spice were condemned to death in Europe's Middle Ages by Henry 8th who held Saffron in the highest regard as a seductive essence. Cultivation: Derived from the dried stigmas of the hand collected purple saffron crocus in the autumn, when fully open it takes anything from 70,000 to 250,000 flowers to make one pound of saffron.
