Hops – humulus lupulus – Also known as Beer Flavor. A Druid sacred herb, this herbaceous twining herb has large toothed leaves and flowers with a distinctive scent of beer. The young shoots are eaten as a vegetable and the leaves blanched for soups, but Hops are cultivated mainly for the brewing industry. The ripe, female flowers, called “strobiles,” are added to beer to flavor, clarify, and preserve it. A pillow stuffed with dried hops aids sleep and healing.

Aromatherapy & Health Uses: The smell of the herb acts as a sedative.

Other Uses: Use in exorcism incenses and mixtures, as well as healing sachets.
