International Herb Association Herb of the Year 2018- Hops!

According to the American College of Healthcare Sciences, “Each year the International herb Association  releases a new addition to their annual anthology series, Herb of the Year™. This year, it’s Hops, Herb of the Year 2018: Brewing and Beyond.

Hops are the green seed cones around the female flowers of Humulus lupulus. The first documented cultivation of hops and use in beer occurred in Germany  in the early 8th to 11th centuries. First used as a flavoring agent in beer, it was later used in herbal medicines. It is most noted in modern times for its relaxing properties, calming tensions and irritability, and it may make one sleepy.

We use hops in some of our formulas…
