Most people are familiar with hops as an ingredient in beer, but the herb has a long history of use as an ingredient in traditional herbal bitters, tisanes, tonics and teas. Dried hops can be used for a variety of things. For example, if you’re having problems with inflammation of a joint or other area of the body, you can create a poultice of dried hops. When you apply it directly to the affected area, you’ll enjoy soothing relief. In addition, hops can be put in a sachet made of cheesecloth or old nylons and placed under your pillow. This will help you to fall asleep and have sweet dreams if you’re suffering from insomnia.*
If you suffer from menstrual cramps that sometimes seem unbearable, hops can also help you to find relief. The plant works to fight muscle spasms that cause the painful cramps. In addition, it can fight spasms in the respiratory system that cause asthma. This work with muscle spasms extends to the digestive system as well. If you suffer from indigestion or irritable bowel syndrome, hops can bring relief by relaxing the muscles of the digestive system. In addition, hops can be a good treatment for increasing your appetite if you’ve lost it due to illness.*
