Like other species in the genus, the plant contains the psychoactive alkaloid apomorphine. It was known to the Mayan and Ancient Egyptian civilizations. Distribution Its original habitat may have been along the Nile and other parts of East Africa. It spread more widely in ancient times, including to the Indian Subcontinent , Specially Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Properties and uses There is evidence that the clinical effects of plants including nymphaea caerulea that contain the psychoactive alkaloid apomorphine were known to both the Mayans and the Ancient Egyptians. The mildly sedating effects of nymphaea caerulea makes it a likely candidate (among several) for the lotus plant eaten by the mythical Lotophagi in Homer's Odyssey. This lotus has been used to produce perfumes since ancient times; it is also used in aromatherapy. This herb is considered relatively safe for long-term use, with no known negative side-effects.
