Blue Lotus flower is a beautiful water lily belonging to the genus Nymphaea, also known as Blue Egyptian Lotus, Blue Egyptian Water Lily, Sacred Blue Lily or Sacred Narcotic Lily of the Nile. It is said to be widely used by Mayan and Ancient Egyptian civilizations. The flower is thought to have Godly associations too. The blue lotus plant is known to purify the blood, strengthen breasts and is useful in treating worms, tuberculosis, vomiting, vertigo, fever, edema, dysuria and toxicosis.

Blue Lotus flower, scientifically referred to as Nymphaea Caerulea, is a natural sedative originated from the Nile River in Egypt. For more than a hundred decades, the native residents used it on spiritual occasions. The main purpose was to get better consciousness.

They boil the entire plant for around 20-30 minutes and then use it.

As far as the United States is concerned, it is not a controlled substance. Nonetheless, it has not been accepted for consumption by humans. Though the cultivation, sale, and purchase are considered to be legal, it cannot be sold for consumption. Stores commonly sell incense and weaker teas but they should abide by the regulations. Louisiana is the only state in the entire country that has issued new laws about Nymphaea Caerulea, which are mainly passed to discourage human consumption.

While the flower is globally legal, Russia has banned its usage altogether. It has been done to prevent the scandals of synthetic marijuana.

User experience of Blue Lotus

I came across blue lotus flower for the first time on my trip to Thailand. I was very much fascinated by its medicinal value and the way the residents raved over it. A few years later, I lost my job, and because of that, I became socially aloof. I did not know what to do and severed all connections. I felt blue all the time and stayed upset in the four walls of my house.

Once while surfing the web, I came across an article on Blue Lotus flower and got reminded of the magical effects it has. I ordered the product and started using the petals in my tea. I felt relaxed, and a sense of euphoria took me over, after ingesting it. I reunited with my long lost friends and tried out the resin extract from the plant as suggested by one of them.

I occasionally smoked it in the proportion of 10:1 resin extract according to the customer reviews on drugforum and felt really awesome. I also started feeling good about myself and applied for interviews at several places. My hard work paid off, and today, I have a job. I owe a bit of my success to this wonder flower.

The customer reviews and information shared by them also proved to be extremely helpful to me. Thanks to blue lotus for all the therapy. I feel overwhelmed whenever I look at that beautiful blue flower.

Thanks for the post RHB.
The common name is confusing. It's a water lilly, not really a lotus.

It has such wide medicinal uses. Anyway, I never tried it but it's nice to know about it.

So many blue plant parts affect the eyes and brain.

IDENTIFICATION:

Nymphaea caerulea has light blue flowers. Other similar varieties have purple, pink, or white flowers. There is much mis-information regarding this species of plant, as well as the Nelumbo nucifera plant. There's a great article called Blue Lily / Blue Lotus Flowers at Shaman's Garden, which makes it vividly clear which plant is which. In short, the reason for the confusion, is that India doesn't have ANY of the plants that are generally accepted as being called "lotus" flowers; they have Nymphaea caerula, which is the "Sacred BLue Lily of the Nile" made famous in Egyptian culture, but they refer to it as "Blue Lotus", confusing spiritual explorers the world over.

• Nelumbo nucifera - Blue Lotus
• Nymphaea caerulea - Blue Lily (Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile)
• Nymphaea ampla - Mesoamerican White Lily (similar psychoactivity)
• Nymphaea rubra - Red Lotus
