He is from Europe and North Africa.
Its wonderful flowers are red in color and last all summer.
Like the opium poppy, it has relaxing properties due to the alkaloids it contains.
Its seeds are round, small and light brown in color.
They resemble those of savory or lemon balm they are found in the pods of the plant.
In herbal medicine, we use dried petals, which are most often herbal teas.
Its soothing properties are felt on the adult, but especially on young children.
By its emollient and sedative properties, it is a calming agent for coughs and irritation of the throat.
