In many countries on the earth, the Blue lotus is famous as an Aphrodisiac!
An Ancient Egyptian Flower Offering Numerous Health Benefits and Peace of Mind
Nymphaea caerulea, the Blue Lotus is also known as Blue Water Lily. This plant is well known for its psychoactive effects and it is being used for thousands of years. Blue Lotus is believed to be originated from Egypt and some parts of Northern Africa around the river Nile. Now, this plant is well known in all parts of the world. Blue Lotus is also commonly found in some parts of Asia, and India, and sometimes it is confused with another plant Nelumbo nucifera which is known as Sacred Lotus.
Blue Lotus has significant importance in various cultural aspects of ancient Egyptians. They were commonly using this plant for its mild psychedelic, and aphrodisiac properties. Moreover, the Blue Lotus was the first plant to be used as a party drug. This plant can be still found in the walls of ancient tombs, so researchers are believing that the psychoactive effects of Blue Lotus were also used for religious purposes. While ancient paintings having Blue Lotus and wine together are providing evidence that Egyptians used this plant to make tinctures and alcoholic beverages.
The use of this plant has been reported for adding flavor to beverages, baking, and cooking, in many parts of Asia. Blue Lotus is a tropical water lily plant and it grows well in still water in the presence of full sunny conditions or partial shade. These plants are sensitive to wind and water splashing. Typically, its flowers are blooming from mid-summer to the end of summer. Usually, this plant grows in rivers and lakes, and its leaves, seeds, flowers, and rhizomes are used for different purposes. Its flowers are opened in the morning and show beautiful petals having a shiny golden center. Whereas these flowers are closed in the evening so, this plant is also called sun god or sacred flower of the sun.
Effects of Blue Lotus Dried Flowers
The psychoactive effects of Blue Lotus can be attributed to the presence of alkaloids such as aporphine, and nuciferine. Nuciferine acts as a blocker for the dopamine receptor and is also found in the Sacred Lotus. Whereas, the function of aporphine is to act as a dopamine agonist and causes the activation of dopamine receptors. This compound causes the stimulation of euphoric, uplifted, and happy feelings.
The effects of Blue Lotus are quite variable among different individuals and may cause mild sedatives, calming, and relaxing, mild analgesics, nervine, euphoria, tactical sensation enhancement, increased dream state, and pleasant synergy with psychedelics, alcohol, and marijuana.
