Blue Lotus Tea
Blue Lotus was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The bright-blue flowers were not only desired for their delightful perfume, but also for the relaxation and heightened awareness they induce.
Modern-day Egyptians say the blue lotus flower, symbolized creation and rebirth as it emerged from its primordial waters to bloom once a year for only 3 days.
Blue Lotus contains nuciferan (a natural anti-spasmodic) along with aporphine, which will give you feelings of calming euphoria. For that reason, it is a natural anti-anxiety and stress reliever. It has been reported to be useful as an aphrodisiac and to remedy erectile dysfunction. On a more medicinal front, Blue Lotus is used to treat gastrointestinal problems, diarrhea and dyspepsia, being a great aid for sleep and helping chronic stress.
The effects of the Blue Lotus, or Blue Waterlily are euphoric, while cooling down the nervous system and relaxing the whole body.
Recommended Use: To make tea, use about 1-2tsp per cup. Infuse almost boiling water into the tea pot, and allow it to infuse for about 10minutes. Remember, overdoing the amount just makes the taste bitter and you lose the subtle taste and feel it provides.
