Dating back to ancient Egyptian times Blue Lotus / Lily has been considered of very high spiritual and cultural importance. Blue lotus flower has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years as a natural aphrodisiac, sleep aid, relaxation and anxiety reliever.

To make the Petal & Stamen Tea they remove the fibrous, woody flower centres from the flowers. The centres have no medicinal value at all. In fact it takes 8kg of Blue Lotus whole flowers to make 5kg of Blue Lotus Petals & Stamens. This makes it more expensive, but every gram of the product has the properties and active ingredients of the Blue Lotus.

A widely known practice is to soak 2-4 flowers soaked in wine for 24 hours to give a noticeable and very pleasant synergy with the wine. Seed extracts and flower extracts can be consumed orally with or without alcohol or smoked. All product forms will produce noticeable effect which can range from mild to a fairly strong sedative state.

Technically called Blue Waterlily, Lotus is commonly confused for and misused for this species. The term Lotus has been used by us for customer searching purposes only. Lotus refers to Nelumbo spp.
