The California poppy is the state flower of California, a tender perennial plant bearing blue-green leaves and 2 to 4 inch (5 to 10 cm) wide flowers that open in bright sun and close on cloudy days and at night. The California poppy is considered an ancient plant whose origins are not entirely known. Native Americans in California prized them as a source of food and for the oil that could be extracted from the plant.

Add 1 oz (30g) of dry herb to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.

Let simmer 30 min-1 hour until liquid reduces by 3/4 to 1/2.

Pour through a strainer into a glass container; squeeze/press out every last bit of liquid.

This makes 1 day’s dose. Drink throughout the day for pain relief every 2-4 hours, alternating with your prescription pain medications. You may make a larger batch and store in refrigerator for at least a week.
