California Poppy has a special place in my heart, my love of the colour orange. These flowers almost sparkle they are so bright and glorious. And, similar to other poppies, this one also has hypnotic effects although much, much more mild and non-addictive. It helps to promote sleep, regulating sleeping patterns and helps to lessen symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression. It is safe for children and elders; and can be used to in cases of ADHD in children, headaches, toothaches, teething, and colic. It has the wonderful benefits of relaxing physical tension, calming nerves in cases of illness, grief, trauma or shock. Those that suffer from insomnia, or are recovering from injury or surgery will find soothing relief with his herb, as it helps to reduce pain and neuralgia.
