November 17, 2016

Insomniac Europeans and sleepy old timers in the West, stuffed pillows with hop cones. Though the homeopathic remedy isn’t proven, hops are still used today in a variety of natural sleep aids. This magical flower isn’t just great at flavoring your favorite pint, but hops are also used a natural remedy to treat sleeplessness, nervousness, infection, and body aches.
