Even if the Poppy, along with the Cornflower and Daisy are well known as a patriotic plant, we highly regard them as a symbol of fraternity, and for many people in May discover them with pleasure, by which for a flower is nicer to be seen in its beautiful and peaceful lure rather than a symbol of bloody sacrifice.
Just like all Poppies, its petal withholds a natural sedative due to Alkaloids and has a remarkable effect on insomnia.
The sedative effect reduces anxiety, nervousness and emotionality, widely recommended to all, including seniors and children. Alkaloids also have positive effects on soothing coughs and sore throats.
We can also use dried Poppy petals for making tea.
For young children, in the older days, they would mix Poppies into their mashes to help ease their sleeping.
Poppy seeds are widely used in cooking, patisseries and special breads.
Their petals are also used to make sweets, tea, meringue, marshmallows, flavored sugar, biscuits, cordials, lemonades, jams, chocolates, nougat….
