Called the “wolf of the woods”, Hops is an ingredient you will likely see in many beers, added for taste. An incredibly relaxing plant, the flowers have been primarily used medicinally in preparations for sleep, anxiety, and nervousness. Hops tea has been found to be supportive for various cases of insomnia, restlessness, tension, and nervousness. It is used as a treatment for ADHD and other excitable conditions. Hops has also been used for irritability, and may have aspects that are lifting to the mood. Some say that Hops are a useful treatment for symptoms of menopause, perhaps due to the estrogen-like effects of some of its chemical components.
