Called a "lotus" known as a Nymphaea caerulea,
which is known today as a water lily. This Blue Lotus was the most important cultivated (ritual) plant of ancient Egypt
. You could see these water lilies
growing wild in ponds, and were very popular in the Nile. The blue lotus flower
was also artificially planted in built bodies of water. The blue lotus
became very popular for its enchanting beauty and I would guess for
also its psychoactive effects. This water lily was a very popular
flower used in ceremonies having to do with death and birth. The great
pharaoh Ramses II (1290-1223 B.C.E.) was made almost completely of white and blue lotus
The Sacred Blue Lotus was traditionally used to promote sexual desire, relieve
pain, create a feeling of well being, euphoria, ecstasy and also increase circulation.
The Blue Lotus was a symbol of sexuality some people says that flower has a
