Blue Lotus (Nymphaea caerulea) is a beautiful, water dwelling flower that was sacred to the Ancient Egyptians. While it’s rare to find this flower growing along the Nile now, it is native to northern and central Africa. Ancient Egyptian temples and monuments are a testament to how well loved this emblematic flower was to their culture; Blue Lotus can be seen embossed on everything from thrones to calcite drinking chalices to papyrus.
Blue Lotus is bitter, aromatic, and warm energetically. In modern, Western herbalism, it is considered a sedative, aphrodisiac, antidepressant, antioxidant, anti-convulsant, and anti-inflammatory herb. Blue Lotus has a particular affinity for the kidneys, heart, and nervous system.
Blue lotus provides a mild sense of tranquility and euphoria, along with an altered sense of awareness. It's a plant of connection, helping us connect more deeply to whatever it is we are trying to connect with, be it a lover, friend, plant, animal, guide, and more. What a beautiful gift it is.
