Egyptian blue lotus or nymphaea caerulea was traditionally used by the ancients to promote sexual desire, relieve pain, increase circulation, and create feelings of well-being, euphoria and ecstasy. For thousands of years it has symbolized enlightenment. The flower was sacred to the Egyptians and was found scattered over Tutankhamen’s body when the Pharaoh’s tomb was opened in 1922. It is admired for its delightful aroma and healing qualities.
