California poppy, an herb indigenous to California and used by Native Americans as a sedative, hypnotic, and analgesic, remains widely popular among herbal practitioners today as a reliable treatment for sleep disorders, especially overexcitement and sleeplessness, and also as an antispasmodic when there is muscular tension, restlessness, and pain. Use in tea or to create your own tinctures at home.
