Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea) [1 oz.]

Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. Blue Lotus was worshiped as a visionary plant and was a symbol for the origins of life. The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness and then a Blue Lotus sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a young god; a Divine Child. Light streamed from the Divine Child to banish universal darkness. This child god was the Creator, the Sun God, the source of all life. When the Pharao known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Blue Lotus flowers. Ancient Egyptians would also mix Blue Lotus in wine or water and drink the mixture. Nymphaea Caerulea is also highly respected and by Indians and in Buddhism. Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea) is also known as Blue Water Lily and the Sacred Lily of the Nile.

During third century, it was introduced to the conquering Greeks who in turn exported it to far regions of the world.

The mildly sedating effects of N. caerulea makes it a likely candidate (among several) for the lotus plant eaten by the mythical Lotophagi in Homer’s Odyssey. This lotus has been used to produce perfumes since ancient times; it is also used in aromatherapy.
