In modern culture, blue lotus flowers are used to make various concoctions including blue lotus tea, wine and martinis. Recipes for such drinks involve steeping or soaking the petals, about 10–20 grams for up to three weeks. Blue lotus 'tea' is prepared by boiling the entire flowers for 10–20 minutes.
Recent studies have shown N. caerulea to have mild psycho-active properties.[medical citation needed] It may have been used as a sacrament in ancient Egypt,. Eating N. caerulea can act as a mild sedative.[medical citation needed] A common misconception is confusion of the lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) with the water lilies (Nymphaea, in particular Nymphaea caerulea, sometimes called the "blue lotus"); they are practically unrelated; far from being in the same family, Nymphaea and Nelumbo are members of different orders (Proteales and Nymphaeales respectively). However, both N. caerulea and N. nucifera contain the alkaloids nuciferine and aporphine.[unreliable source?] The mildly sedating effects of N. 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.
