POPPY

poppyOn Remembrance Sunday, it seems appropriate to consider the corn poppy, Papaver rhoeas. This beautiful flower with its delicate petals seems to have been replaced these days by other herbs with anodyne and sedative properties but it can still be very useful for helping with insomnia and as a painkiller for mild earache and toothache as well as for soothing irritable intractable coughs.
