Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile

                 Blue lotus flowers have sedative effects, while also inducing a sense of euphoria. They have been, and still are used by cultures from around the world as an "entheogen". This plant does produce pharmacological constituents which have been researched by phytochemist thoroughly. It's popular as a recreational herbal inebriant. It has also been used to produce perfumes since ancient times.


                 Recent studies have shown Nymphaea caerulea to have mild psycho-active properties. It may have been used as a sacrament in ancient Egypt and certain ancient South American cultures due to evidence which suggest this. It can either be eaten, made into a tea, or made into a tincture. The dried flowers of certain species of Nymphaea and Nelumbo contain the active constituents which are attributed to its psychoactive potential. In ancient times the plant was depicted in hieroglyphics, and other historic artifacts. Today, it's one of the most popular ethnobotanicals on the planet.

Dosage: This is subjective. Dosages for Blue Lotus varies from person to person and depends on many factors such as the quality of the substance, set and setting, metabolism, etc. It's unwise to try anything for the first time at a moderate to large dose, because you don't know how you're body or mind, will react, or what to expect. Please remember that this information is for research purposes and you need to familiarize yourself with what you consume, and communicate with your professional health care provider before considering trying anything.

It's common for someone to suggest 5 grams per individual for an amateur. Some argue and say that 10-20 grams prepared as a tea or soaked in alcohol, preferable wine is needed. Soak the stems and/or flowers for several weeks in high proof alcohol such as Everclear to fully extract all of the constituents. A tea or wine made from the flowers will taste very bitter so be warned. What's also important is to ignore rumors, conduct your own research, and test your own administration methods. I don't think tea is the best method of preparation for Blue Lotus. Sites like pubchem allow us to access academic information regarding the phytochemical gems that these plants fascinate us with.


Basics On Infusions & Extractions


                 Certain phytochemicals are readily soluble in water, while others are more alcohol based. This is why there are differnt methods for preparing plant based medicines, and why they have different applications. A truly perfected elixir, or infusion, captures phytochemicals from both spectrums. The idea is to get all of the polar constituents, the non-polar ones, and the salts and other left overs as well. This will allow you to experience the full spectum of medicinal and entheogenic effects that Blue Lotus has to offer.


Blue lotus is definatly a chill herb, and there are several other lotus varities on the market. Remember that you have options because there is also a White, and Pink lotus. Don't use this plant befre work or when you have something important to do. It seems to be associated more so with the night time, spirituality, and meditation. It even has its place in certain Bhuddist traditions. Its effects are tranquil, and peaceful. They help you drift into a hypnotic state of ecstacy.


Soaking the Blue Lotus in alcohol for up to one month is my preferred method of consumption. This extract is also known as a tincture. Making tinctures out of extracts is a good idea I think. Tinctures have a much longer shelf life and potency than that of herbal teas. Don't forget that they have to be made with strong enough alcohol, because something like Vodka won't cut it. After this process is complete, you can now consider taking the extractoin process a step further. Google calcination, because it's really interesting.


Using water and sunlight has been an ancient way for isolating any essential oils from flowers. This process is done over a period of time. The spirit and essential oils can be combined or kept separated for differnt applications. How far you can go with it really never ends. Many professionals go as far as do several techniques including extracting plant salts from left over material. Ancient holistic arts can get really complex, and is more scientific than some think.

Constituents:


Erowid.org states the following information on the naturally occuring compounds found within the plant matter:

Apomorphine, nuciferine ( 1,2-dimethoxy-aporphine), nornuciferine.


Apomorphine is considered a dopamine agonist, as well as nuciferine. It's believed that apomorphine activates D1 and D2 and also acts on 5-HT receptors and adrenergic receptors.


                 In my opinion this is one of the coolest botanicals out there. The wine made me feel extra sedated with mood-enhancing properties. I didn't consume enough of the brew to get wasted, or even that buzzed on the alcohol. The effects seemed to over-power the alcohol. They were clean and long lasting. I slept great after the effects began to wear off. The effects were not extreme but not to be taken lightly either. I give it a thumbs up.
