The famous blue lotus is not actually a lotus, but a water lily with gorgeous bright blue-purple flowers. It was beloved by the ancient Egyptians for ceremony, medicine, beauty products, and pleasure and is still used today in many of the same ways the ancients used it. In Egyptian mythology it was connected to the liminal times of dusk and dawn due to its blooming cycle. It was believed to connect us to the gods, nature spirits, and the spirits of the dead. The flowers and flower buds were a common grave offering in tombs.
Its active alkaloids are topically active and effect the central nervous system similar to our beloved medicinal nightshade ointments. Blue lotus contains aporphine (euphoric) and nuciferine (relaxant & sedative) which effect your dopamine levels.
Like our mandrake ointment, this Nymphaea Ointment is one we recommend for aphrodisiac use because of its happy, pleasant euphoric effects but also because it is is safe to contact mucous membranes (aka your mouth and genitals). Apply two hours before love-making and the aphrodisiac effects can last for 4-6 hours.
Made with whole blue lotus plant, wild harvested poplar buds (populus balsamifera), sunflower oil (helianthus annuus), and beeswax.
