Nymphaea caerulea - Blue Lotus
When the flowers are soaked in wine, steeped in hot water or burned as incense they produce effects of relaxation and mild euphoria with a sense of spiritual enlightenment. Extracts from the flowers offer a more potent and noticeable effect. 20:1 means 1 gram of extract is equivelant to 20 grams of flowers. A tincture can be used sublingually (absorbed under the tongue or cheek) or added to another liquid/food. If your feeling stressed or dragged down, Blue Lotus makes a wonderful mood revitalizer!
