Although Nymphaea caerulea is commonly called Blue Lotus, it is actually a member of the Lily family. Nymphaea caerulea was depicted in Ancient Egyptian art and temples along with Nelumbo nucifera. It is also reported that the Ancient Egyptians used the flower petals of Nymphaea caerulea for their narcotic and sedative effects. The petals are said to produce feelings of relaxation, clarity, lightness, and well-being.
