    Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea) is also known as Eyptian Blue Lotus, Egyptian Lotus, Blue Water Lily, and Sacdred Narcotic Lily of the Nile. Note: Nymphaea caerulea, (Blue Lotus) is often confused with Agapanthus africanus (Blue Lily). Though the two plants look nothing alike (aside from being blue), both Nymphaea caerulea and Agapanthus africanus are sometimes referred to as the "blue lily". "Blue Lily" seems to be a more accurate name for Agapanthus africanus, whereas Nymphaea caerulea is more commonly called the "blue lotus" or "blue water lily".

    It is Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Lotus) which was used in ancient Egypt as a key to good health, sex, and rebirth. Called the aphrodisiac of the Pharoahs, Blue Lotus was used by ancient Egyptians men and women as an aphrodisiac to enhance the sex drive, sexual vigor, to improve sexual performance and general good health. Egyptians medicinal practitioners also used this flower to stimulate blood flow, and as an anti aging treatment. The ancients worshipped Blue Lotus as a visionary plant and it was the symbol for the origins of life. When this flower was soaked in water or wine, and then ingested it acted as an intoxicant. The Indians and Buddhist highly respected it for its visionary properties. A tonic like ginseng, pain reliever like arnica, circulation stimulant better than ginkgo biloba, and sexual stimulant better than Viagra and all of these are combined in this flower. This flower creates a feeling of well being, euphoria and ecstasy. Without being a narcotic. This flower creates a feeling of well being, euphoria and ecstasy.

    Blue Lotus is indigenous to Tanzania, Kenya. Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Lotus) is a water plant growing on the shores of lakes and rivers in wet soil. Blue Lotus has light blue flowers. Other similar varieties have purple, pink, or white flowers. Nymphaea ampla has similar psychoactivity but has white flowers. Nymphaea lotus L. is a white lotus and Nymphaea nelumba L is a red lotus. Nymphaea caerulea flowers in the spring should be planted in sunny positions in medium or clay loam.

    blue lotus and egyptian royalty

    Represented in ancient Egyptian art. The blue lotus was found scattered over Tutankhamen"s body when the Pharaoh"s tomb was opened in 1922. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but there may be some reason to believe that ancient Egyptians used it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and/or hallucinations, as well as being widely used as a general remedy against illness, and to this day is used as a tonic for good health.

    Azru, is an Egyptian mummy donated to the Manchester Museum in England, in 1825. Living on the Nile, in 2700 B.C, Azru was royalty, a noblewoman of Thebes, later called Luxor, a former capital of Egypt, a chantress at Khonsu - the moon god was the son of Amon and Mut. The main temple at Karnak is dedicated to him. Three times a day she would bring food and wine with blue lotus tincture or extract, fetch garments for the gods, priests and Pharaoh, and dance and sing for the royal court. She had wealth, and her own home and servants, where she stayed until scheduled or called to the temple. There is evidence to suggest that it was a very sexually oriented society due to their pictures, writings, and religous beliefs. And, that blue lotus was historically, traditionally and effectively used, to relieve pain, increase memory, increase circulation, promote sexual desire and create a feeling of euphoria and ecstacy, without the use of narcotics.

    Dr. Rosalie David, Professor, Manchester Museum, at the Manchester Infirmary conducted an autopsy of Azru. There was a team of biologists, pathologists, radiologists, forensic scientists, anesthesiologists, Egyptologists and others who participated in the most extensive analysis of a mummy ever conducted. This project, established in 1973, involves multidisciplinary team of Egyptologists and scientists who have developed a methodology for the study of Egyptian mummified remains and added to knowledge of disease, living conditions and religious beliefs in ancient Egypt. The project has been the subject of six books, five exhibitions, and six films shown internationally, and has received many awards. A key element of the project is the development of virtually non-destructive methods of obtaining tissue samples from mummies for further study. Techniques include radiology, histopathology, electron microscopy, serology, palaeondontology, DNA fingerprinting and genetic studies, scientific facial reconstruction, textile studies, and plant and resin analyses.

    The Ministry of Health in Egypt, Medical Service Corporation International of Arlington, Virginia, U.S.A., and the Manchester Project are undertaking a joint study of the epidemiology of a parasitic disease, schistosomiasis (Bilharzia), in Egypt. This project is addressing the historical context and epidemiology of a disease in a population over a 5000-year period. Through analytical comparison of data from mummified remains, and from modern studies, this multidisciplinary research will contribute to the understanding of disease evolution and lay the groundwork for future studies on this and other diseases.
