Californian poppy

Origin: we obtain Californian poppy from farmers in California, in the United States.

Plant part used: whole grass.

Extraction-method: water.

After extraction the color is brown-yellow. Californian poppy, or Eschscholzia Corangealifornica, is an orange flowering plant from the United States and Mexico. It is the official state flower of California. Its native habitat includes California, extending to Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Sonora and northwest Baja California. Californian poppy flower color ranges from yellow to orange, with flowering from February to September. The petals close at night or in cold, windy weather and open again the following morning.

California poppy leaves were used medicinally by Native Americans, and the pollen was used cosmetically. The plant extract has an affinity for the benzodiazepine receptor, like prescription sleeping aids and works well in combination with melatonin.
