Latin name: Eschscholtzia californica


Eschscholtzia hydroalcoholic extract 100% (Eschscholtzia*, alcohol*(24%), agave syrup*, water)
* ingredients from certified organic agriculture


Eschscholtzia belongs the Papaveraceae family(opium source) but is not addictive and does not cause inurement.
Papaveraceae often contain many alkaloids (such as the opium poppy or poppy). Eschscholzia also but its roots contain much more of them than the aerial parts (respectively 2% to 3% and 0.5%). The most important eschscholtzia alkaloids have been studied by pharmacologists and do not appear to have any significant toxicity except for Sanguinarin, but this is only present as a trace in the aerial parts (unlike the roots). (main source:

Recommendations for use

  • Internal use: 15 to 30 drops, one to three times a day as needed or 30 minutes before bedtime
  • External use: several times a day, apply locally with a coton bud or leave a drop where needed, or apply a soaked pad to the area to be treated.

Precautions for use

Some people noticed a certain torpor after taking eschscholtzia. For sensitive people it is therefore advisable to take it only in the evening, to avoid taking alcohol during treatment (because it increases the sedative effect) and not to associate eschscholtzia with other tranquillizers. In case of torpor avoid having to perform an activity requiring concentration and sustained attention (driving for example).
Contraindicated in pregnant and breastfeeding women (because of the presence of certain alkaloids)
