Effect of blue lotus
This herb can be deeply relaxing for the mind and body. Its calming properties make it great for meditation and yoga practice. It gives a mild sense of calm and euphoria, along with an altered sense of consciousness. Its effects combine very well with wine, highlighting the social and euphoric aspect. Some users also report a pleasant feeling of warmth around the head and upper body and a dreamlike feeling – as if life itself is a waking dream.
Blue lotus has both an anesthetic and a euphoric effect, and is slightly hallucinogenic in a higher dose. The flower is also said to increase sexual arousal and have a potency-enhancing effect.
To make tea, take 5 grams and soak it in hot water.
For a traditional Egyptian drink, soak the flowers in wine for several hours. Use about 5 grams per bottle. Do not exceed the recommended dose: blue lotus makes the wine bitter and difficult to drink. Sweet wine such as desert wine is generally recommended.
The herb can also be vaporized with a vaporizer. Use 0.25-0.5 g and evaporate at 100 °C to 125 °C degrees. The aporphine alkaloid evaporates at 125 degrees Celsius.
25 grams of dried flowers.
