Californian Poppy acts as a nervine (reduces nerve impulses), sedative, analgesic, febrifuge (reduces fevers), antispasmodic (reduces spasms), anxiolytic (reduces anxiety), thymoleptic (antidepressant), antihistamine and uterine stimulant.
It is an excellent herb for the nervous system and can be thought of as a gentle balancer to the emotions and a calming remedy for times of stress due to its sedative and anti-anxiety actions.
It is suitable for calming both children and adults, helping to reduce anxiety and tension in the day and induce sleep at night without side effects of drowsiness or stupor. It can be used to ease depression, restlessness and agitation, and is especially good for people who find it hard to let go and relax and push themselves too hard, often to the point of exhaustion.
California poppy has a reputation of being a milder, non-addictive alternative to other poppies, and can be used for pain relief, anxiety and hysteria.
