Water lily ointment can be used ritually for purification and to align with the divine. Water lily is believed to re-align the mind, body, and spirit in harmony and to align ourselves with nature. It is used in folk magic for trance work, astral travel, lucid dreaming, love and lust magic, breaking love spells, and communing with nature, deities, and the ancestors. In North American indigenous lore water lilies are associated with the underworld, the moon, the god and goddess of the underworld, and the ancestors. Their symbology often includes serpents, frogs, toads, and the supernatural water jaguar or water panther.
Nymphaea odorata’s aporphine alkaloids are topically active and effect the central nervous system similar to our beloved medicinal nightshade ointments.
Like our mandrake ointment, this water lily 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). It takes two hours for the effects to fully kick in. It is also traditionally used to cool sexual desire revealing that this plant understands consent. Let it know which intent you wish for before use.
Made with Nymphaea odorata flowers and roots, vitamin e oil, castor oil (ricinus communis), and sunflower wax and is 100% plant based and vegan friendly.
