Higher doses of California poppy are sedating, lower doses reduce anxiety and relieve stress.
Chamomile: One of the most ancient plants in modern use, chamomile has a history stretching back at least 3,000 years as a medicinal plant. From the Greek word for ground apple, chamomile has been used as an age old remedy by many ancient civilisations. The Romans were prescribed this herb by the noted physician Pliny, to ward off headaches, ease liver and kidney inflammation and facilitate digestion. The Greek physician and botanist Dioscorides used chamomile to heal intestinal, nervous and liver disorders and prescribed it for women’s ailments. Chamomile was considered one of the nine sacred herbs of the Anglo-Saxons and was used ritually to ward off diseases and to promote health.
Medicinal plants such as this one contain a complex series of phytonutrients that work individually and collectively to ease a wide range of complaints. Whilst science tries to find “the chemical” that makes a plant effective, in reality it is the combined workings of these compounds which ultimately provide relief.
