The Story

Hops: Humulus lupulus (L.)

Why Hop Strobiles? Most notable for its use in beer production, the hop is indigenous to Britain, Europe, and North America. The female flower, or strobiles, are harvested just before ripening and dried in the shade to preserve the volatile oil. Hops are used to soothe nerves and support healthy, restful sleep.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic hop strobiles are sustainably sourced in the U.S.A. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for use.

How to Use

Benefits: Hops are considered a safe herbal support for sleep and a peaceful disposition. They can even safely be used for children; hop pillows are a pleasant and safe addition to your bedtime routine. Hops are also a friend to mature women and can ease discomfort commonly associated with menopause. 

Cautions and Contraindications: The AHPA notes that some experts advise against the use of hops in depression. There is a possibility that hops may not mix well with existing sedative therapy and alcohol, so it is recommended to use with caution or under the care of a qualified herbalist or natural health practitioner.
