Blue lotus is sacred to Egyptian culture as a symbol of creation and rebirth. Blue Lotus is frequently depicted in significant spiritual or magical rites. Blue lotus has been historically used in Egypt for a variety of purposes including stimulant, aphrodisiac, sexual enhancer and remedy against general illness. The origin of the world was taught to have been when the sun god Ra emerged from a lotus flower growing in “primordial waters”. At night, he was believed to retreat into the flower again. Ancient Egyptians believed the world was originally covered by water and darkness. Then a large blue lotus appeared in the water, the flower opened and light appeared thus ending darkness on earth. King Tut’s body was found to be covered with blue lotus petals when his tomb was opened in 1922.

Blue Lotus Flowers (crushed)

Blue Lotus Dried Crushed Flowers (Nymphaea Caerulea)

Description

Nymphaea caerulea, known primarily as blue lotus  is a water lily in the genus Nymphaea. It was considered extremely significant in Egyptian mythology and regarded as a symbol of the sun.

Some evidence indicates the clinical effects of plants including N. caerulea that contain the psychoactive alkaloid apomorphine were known to both the Mayans and the Ancient Egyptians.

The mildly sedating effects of blue lotus makes it a likely candidate for the plant eaten by the mythical lotus-eaters in Homer’s Odyssey.

This lotus has been used to produce perfumes since ancient times; it is also used in aromatherapy.

    I love blue lotus. I’m so happy it was made aware to me more recently and that botanic elevation was able to ship it to me almost overnight. I find it very calming and it helps me to sleep at night. I recommend it as an evening tea before bed for relaxation.
