The Nymphaea Caerulea plant has a rich history of use in ancient Egypt. It was used in rituals and ceremonies, and even found scattered over the body of Pharaoh Tutankhamen when his tomb was opened. Research suggests that the plant was used to induce ecstatic states, euphoria, feelings of wellbeing, and visions. The Blue Lotus was also found in Egyptian art and hieroglyphics in relation to afterlife and rebirth, and women would wear the buds in their hair as adornments.
Traditionally, the flower extracts were taken as drops, made into tea or soaked in wine, and smoking the dried flowers was also common practice. The plant was believed to relieve pain, increase memory, improve circulation, enhance sexual desire, and promote good health. The flowers were also used to treat liver ailments, constipation, neutralize poison, and regulate the urinary system.
Scientific studies have shown that Nymphaea Caerulea contains apomorphine, which acts as a dopamine antagonist, as well as nuciferine, nupharine, and nupharidine. The flowers also contain other alkaloids such as kaempferol, which act as a type of MAOI.
Historically, Blue Lotus was found growing in the lowlands of the Nile. The sky blue and sometimes purple flowers bloom during the day, and are star-shaped with upright pointed petals that grow atop a long stem, sometimes 4-5 feet above the water. Its leaves are round and flat, which sit atop the water’s surface. The plant used to grow only in the wetlands of the Nile delta, with some found in Palestine. However, blue lotus now has disappeared almost completely from the Nile region and is seriously endangered.
The Blue Lotus flower (Nymphea caerulea) is an Egyptian water lily containing apomorphine and nuciferine. Apomorphine is a widely used agent for Parkinson’s disease in its isolated form. Nuciferine is an alkaloid associated with dopamine receptor blockade.
