In no tradition of folklore or religion is the Blue Lily (Nymphaea caerulea) more revered than in the legends of the ancient Egyptians. They believed that the world was originally covered by naught save for water and dark. A blue lily sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a divine child, a young god. Light issued forth from the being, ending for all time the universal darkness. This child-god was the creator, the sun god, the source of all life. The body of the Pharaoh called Tutankhamen was discovered in his tomb covered with blue lily flowers.
Traditionally, a cigarette made of the dried flowers was smoked. These are flowers and tops only and are suspected to contain the natural alkaloids aporphine and nuciferine.
There are also reports from spiritual explorers that speak of the ritual usefulness of sacred blue lily when smoked over several days, especially when the blue lily petals are combined with, or alternated with white lotus (Nymphaea alba) flowers.
The history of the rare Egyptian blue lily was revealed on a PBS special. The blue lily was traditionally used to treat aches and pains, improve memory, promote circulation, and promote sexual desire. According to recent studies, blue lily was found to be loaded with phytosterols and bioflavonoids. Traditionally, it has been used to support a natural sense of well-being.
