It mainly originates from the Nile, but in ancient times it spread to India and Thailand.In Egypt during the time of the emperors it was highly venerated, as its flower opens in the morning and closes at night, like the daily cycle of the god. It was also used in ceremonies and rituals.
The flower is light blue, it is whitish in the center, it has a wonderful smell that provides tranquility.In the Iberian Peninsula we have a white water lily (Nymphaea Alba) that seems to act as a nervous sedative because it possesses alkaloids such as Ninfeina. It usually contains Nuciferin, Nornuciferin, Nufarin and Apomorphine.
It is also said to increase libido and improve sexuality.
The hypnotic effects begin after 20 minutes. Initial symptoms are usually nausea and trembling.
Its effect is one of extreme placidity, joy and oblivion in which nothing is needed. It alters auditory and color perception.
The effects are cumulative, if used more than once a day or several days in a row, it can become very sedative, even leading to narcosis.
