Dating back to ancient European times, beautifully cultivated along the river Nile, Blue Lotus is considered of very high spiritual and cultural importance. Benefits include expanded relaxation, lucid dreaming, anxiety reliever, help menstruation problems, a natural moisturiser and a lot more. It was also associated with the Royals of Egypt and was considered a party drug due to its mild aphrodisiac effect.
We matched our Blue Lotus hand-rolled incense to the Vartry as we often seek mental and spiritual clarity from exploring the many trails from this vast lake district. A fantastic place to escape, unwind and explore. The Vartry reservoir acts as the ecosystem of the Wicklow mountains, all the water funnels through the Vartry River and channels into these lakes. This reservoir feeds into the Wicklow/ Dublin waterworks for consumers. Filled with thriving wildlife, flora, fauna and mountain views with close to 20km of trails surrounding the lakes.
The Blue Lotus flower is a psychoactive plant, also known as Blue Egyptian Lotus, Blue Water Lily or Sacred Blue Lily. Today the Blue Lotus flower has been used primarily as a sleep aid and anxiety reliever. The Blue Lotus is filled with innumerable benefits, but it is now an endangered plant.
