The SacredBlue Lotus, as often called, appears on many hieroglyphs and tombs from Ancient Egypt. It seems the ancients would steep the Lotus in wine for a trance-like experience. This flower has great symbolic power and a noteable effect on the mind. Its vibrant violet hue brings some of the highest energy, like that of the crystal Amethyst.
We find a clear effect of mental spaciousness, focus and inspiration.
Grind the flowers for smoke or tea, or steep the Lotus whole in wine - for synergistic effect. (Blends well with Mugwort for a dreamy reality)
