Blue Lotus Powder
Blue Lotus Flower – Nymphaea caerulea
Nymphaea caerulea, commonly referred to as blue lotus, or sacred blue lily of the Nile, is a water lily that is native to northern and central Africa. Blue lotus was once abundant in the Nile Delta but is now considered endangered in this region. While it still grows in parts of Egypt and Southeast Asia, it has naturalized throughout eastern Australia, the Pacific Islands, Argentina and parts of Brazil.
It has a long history of use in traditional medicine and spiritual practices, and its effects have been described as relaxing. Blue Lotus flower’s usage can be traced back to ancient Egypt when it was believed mythologically, culturally, and medicinally to aid sexual health and vitality.
Blue Lotus Powder leaves are broadly rounded, 25–40 cm across, with a notch at the leaf stem. The flowers are 10–15 cm in diameter. Reports in the literature by persons unfamiliar with its actual growth and blooming cycle have suggested that the flowers open in the morning, rising to the surface of the water, then close and sink at dusk. In fact, the flower buds rise to the surface over a period of two to three days, and when ready, open around 9:30 am and close about 3:00 pm. The flowers and buds do not rise above the water in the morning, nor do they submerge at night. The flowers have pale bluish-white to sky-blue or mauve petals, smoothly changing to a pale yellow in the center of the flower.
