Corn Poppy or Papaver rhoeas is an annual and dicotyledonous plant of the family Papaveraceae.
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.
It is then used in the form of lozenges to suck.

Although smaller than some poppies, seeds are used like medicinal poppy or black sesame in baking or to make flavored breads.

Its leaves or dried petals are also used to soothe the body.
