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. For centuries it has been respected as an ancestral flower known to provoke deep meditation, enhance third eye function and motivate lucid dreaming.
The effects of the Blue Lotus, or Blue Waterlily are euphoric, while cooling down the nervous system and relaxing the whole body.
To make tea, use about 1-2 tsp per cup. Steep the tea with near boiling water and allow it to infuse for about 10 minutes. Overdoing the amount or using water that's boiling makes the taste bitter and you lose the subtle taste and feel it provides.
