This liquid extract made from the Certified Organic California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) dried above-ground parts of the plant from France and Certified Organic Valerian (Valeriana Officinalis) dried root from Poland. California Poppy also known as Eschscholzia californica, Western Poppy, Poppy, and Gold Poppy. Native Americans in California prized them as a source of food and for the oil that could be extracted from the plant. California Poppy contains alkaloids, principally cryptopine. California poppy commonly combined with Valerian to enhance benefits of both plants. Valerian Root also known as Valeriana officinalis. Common Valerian, European Valerian, Valeriana and Allheal. Valerian is a perennial plant, native to Europe and parts of Asia. It grows in meadows and woodlands within moist, temperate climates and has since been naturalized in North America. The flowers have a sweet, pleasant scent, in distinct contrast to the medicinal roots of the plant. The root system consists of a vertical rhizome and an abundance of smaller rootlets which are harvested and dried at temperatures less than 105 degrees Fahrenheit. The roots have a pungent odor, considered unpleasant by many and sometimes compared to the smell of sweaty socks. Valerian root contains acetic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-ionone, calcium, caffeic acid, magnesium, manganese, quercitin, valeric acid. It is traditionally used to support healthy sleep and relaxation.
