California Poppy

Latin:  Eschscholzia californica

Family:  Papaveraceae

Parts Used:  Leaves, flowers

Taste/Energetics:   Bitter, cooling

Properties:  analgesic, moderately relaxing nervine.

Actions: California Poppy is from the Poppy family of plants and is a cousin to the famous opium poppy.  While nowhere close to as strong as opium poppy, California poppy has similar analgesic effects  and is also gently relaxing.   I find it to have a pleasant calming effect and can be useful for those who are trying to reduce analgesics and opiates in general.  C. Poppy is quite nice in formulas with other analgesics such as Jamaican Dogwood and Betony.    This is a quick acting herb with gentle relieving qualities often useful for symptomatic relief.

Dose:  Generally as tincture from 2-4 ml up to twice a day.  As tea, 1-2 tsp to cup of hot water, infused for 10 minutes.

Contraindications:  Avoid with heavy sedatives, analgesics.
