Hops, Humulus lupulus, are a calming herb well known for their natural sedative effect which comes from a substance called lupulin. Both King George III and Abraham Lincoln are known to have used hops to get a good night's sleep. Hops help reduce nervous tension, headaches, and insomnia. A pillow of warm hops will often relieve a toothache and earache and allay nervous irritation. Hops contain phytohormones, which are responsible for the toning and blood flow-promoting properties. They soften skin, soothe and calm inflammation and promote healing. In hair care, hops help heal and repair damaged hair.
