The blue water lily was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The god of the blue water lily was Nefertem, Lord of Perfume. The flowers were not only noted for their delightful perfume by the Egyptians but also for bringing euphoria, heightened awareness and tranquility. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but there are some reasons to believe that ancient Egyptians used it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and/or hallucinations.
Monarchs and priests of ancient Egypt used this plant as a narcotic both for its healing qualities and as a recreational drug (soaked in wine). Probably it contains aporphine and a substance called nuciferine, soluble in alcohol but not known to be psychoactive. People confirm effects as "euphoria with tranquilization.", like cannabis or codeine; a little hallucinatory at higher doses - but mainly hypnotic with a pretty good sedative, mild opiod or cannabis like feeling. It says that the flower "has a sort of Viagra effect", Other claimed effects similar in some ways to MDMA.
