Poppy ~ Eschscholzia californica
This bright yellow flower has been foraged since prehistoric times to promote restful sleep, for relaxation, and as a mild narcotic. In recent times, it has been used to treat PTSD, and while not an opiate, California Poppy has been used to treat opiate withdrawal. It inspires dreams, and causes the muscles to relax. This is an herb we love to use in the evening to enhance our dreams and support restful sleep. All of our poppy plants are ethically and legally wild harvested in California, on privately owned lands. A fun fact about poppies. Poppies are known to be a highly evolved species, they tuck themselves in at night, this is known as nyctinasty, they retire after the sun goes down. Interestingly, they invite us to tuck ourselves in when we consume them. Sweet dreams.
