A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
California Poppy is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as minerals such as calcium and magnesium. It’s a beneficial herb for those who are looking to sharpen cognitive skills--like memory and concentration… which is why this medicinal herb is a MUST HAVE in my herbal pantry (because you know how much I like to nurture my noodle ;).
California poppy contains sedative properties, which makes it one of my go-to herbs for relieving anxiety and stress. If I ever pushed myself too hard at the gym, and felt sore the next day… California Poppy blended with Meadowsweet would be the infusion which would come to my rescue in that moment.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use California Poppy for?
If I suffered from panic attacks, insomnia, hypertension—anything which would require me to need a proverbial “chill pill”--California Poppy would absolutely make it into my daily herbal infusions.
If I was diagnosed with any behavioral disorders such as OCD, Bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s, ADD, and ADHD, I would choose California Poppy over all pharmaceutical interventions.
If I came down with a high fever, or had a traumatic event which led to my heart rate being elevated, or if I was stricken by a spasmodic cough or had hiccups that wouldn’t go away—California Poppy tea would make its way into my system.
California Poppy is a “top shelf” natural pain reliever, and is a safe and mindful alternative to prescription medication. It contains analgesic and antispasmodic properties which are useful in providing relief from acute nerve and muscle related pain.
I wouldn’t hesitate to administer this herb to my children if they had colic.
