- Have you tried California Poppy for anxiety, mood swings and sleep problems?
The California poppy contains protopine, which has similar (but much milder effects) as morphine, making it a good natural sedative. Although it is a relative of the Opium Poppy, it is not an opiate, so using it won’t cause dependence problems. Steep two grams of this herb in boiling water to make a relaxing tea to help sooth nerves, balance your moods and calm you down before bedtime.
If you cant find this in your local health shop, look online – several stores, amazon sell the tincture and tea.
