Blue Lotus Flowers (crushed)
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.
