Blue lotus (nymphaea caerulea), also known as the Egyptian water lily, is a flowering water-lily native to Egypt but may be found growing in other parts of the world. The Blue Lotus flower is used as an aid for many ailments as well as for recreational purposes. Blue Lotus is reportedly used to relieve pain, to enhance memory, to increasing circulation, to experience feelings of euphoria and ecstasy, and as a sexual aphrodisiac.
This flower can be used by both men and women as an aphrodisiac. It is a painkiller that is especially useful for relieving muscle spasms, migraines, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). It can be smoked, which is especially beneficial for eliminating migraine headaches, since they usually accompany nausea. Blue lotus is reported to be “as strong as codeine”, but it is effective in remedying migraines, menstrual cramps, and various moderate pains.
