Nymphaea caerulea (Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. It was worshipped as a spiritual plant and became a symbol for the origins of life. Traditionally, it was consumed after being soaked in warm water or wine, while a cigarette made of the dried flowers was smoked.
The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness until a Blue Lily sprang up from the water bearing a young god or divine child emanating light that dispelled the darkness. As the Creator or Sun God, the divine child came to be regarded as the primeval source of life. When the Pharaoh known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile flowers.
This resin is carefully crafted from the flowers of the Sacred Blue Lily at the peak of flowering.
