Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea)
Commonly used part: Flowers
Reported effects: Stimulating, relaxing, a sense of well being, euphoria, and reduced withdrawal symptoms. Used by the Ancient Egyptians to increase the effects of wine, promote longevity, and raise sexual arousal.
A native flower to the edges of the Nile. The Blue Lotus has symbolized spiritual enlightenment for thousands of years. One of its most popular uses was that of an aphrodisiac, something which it is still known for today when purchased in the adequate form and amount. The petals can be submerged in wine for a few hours, which creates an exotic tasting liquid that helps relieve stress. The flowers can also be placed in hot water to make tea, which helps with blood circulation and improves one’s concentration. The Blue Lotus is not an addictive plant and can be used freely because it has very mild effects on the body.

Donald Armstrong –
I have ordered dry blue lotus flower from other sources, but this is higher quality. An interesting (not unpleasant) smoke, although a bit more difficult than cannabis–the petals do not grind well, and it doesn’t burn as smoothly. But worth trying.
