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 host 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 sued 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."
