Botanical name: Nymphaea Caerulea. The beautiful blue flowers of this much revered lotus were smoked and ingested by the ancient Egyptians, producing a subtle, calming and etheric effect. Blue Lotus, otherwise known as sacred lily of the Nile, is a delicious relaxing smoke. Cleopatra was particularly enamored with this herb and it was even represented in early Egyptian art. It creates a dream-like state and provides for a deep sleep afterwards. For maximum effect, try infusing 100 grams in a bottle of vodka for a few weeks.
