hops

Yes, this is what they use to make beer., except we’re going to use it to get healthy here. A prickly vine with scaly, green, downward pointing fruit and 3-5 lobed leaves. The strange looking fruit is the part you want. Tea made from it is used as a calming sedative to soothe tension, nerves, restlessness, sleep problems, anxiety, cramps, spasms, coughs, inflammation, boils, rheumatism. Calming effect similar to valerian. Some people fill pillows with hops to sleep better. Licorice root and hops flowers have often been used throughout history to treat hormone imbalances and just about every female problem known, giving women a sense of well being and control. Be careful when handling plant as resin and fine hairs can irritate skin.
