Certified Organic California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) is commonly used to promote sleep and general relaxation. The indigenous California Indians used this poppy as both a source of food and medicine. Several groups boiled the plant, or roasted it on hot stones, to eat as a green. The Costanoan Indians rubbed a decoction of the flowers in the hair to kill lice; the Indians of Mendocino County used a poultice of fresh root for toothaches and a topically applied extract for headaches and sores; and Cahuilla women used the pollen as a cosmetic and the whole plant as a sedative for babies. Gentle in effect, California poppy is used to soothe minor aches and pains. California poppy is member of the poppy family and somewhat distantly related to the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum). While the California poppy does contain some sedative alkaloids, it contains no real "opium."

Relaxing! Review by LGD

Tried vaporizing it first and it's pretty rough. Then we tried making a tea with it. Excellent! Made a cup of tea with about 1 tablespoon of the herb and a few sprinkles of dried mint. Let it step in the coffee filter basket for 10 mins and then drain into my cup. The mint makes it smooth and takes away the bitterness of the poppy. (Posted on 2/16/2014)

I enjoy this product a lot. Mainly the flavor and various health benefits. But also the Relaxation. It mixes well with kava that's for sure!. But i would recommend a powder instead the sticks are a little bothersome to drink but a cheese clothe straining method would take care of that but I'm not one to do that. Great value great product worth trying!. (Posted on 10/28/2013)
