JANUARY HERB OF THE MONTH: HOPS

FUN FACTS ABOUT HOPS!

Hops – Humulus lupulus •

The female flower (also called a cone or strobile) of the hops plant, Humulus lupulus, is the part of the plant used to make beer and is responsible for the bitter flavor.

• The vine is referred to as a bine, the botanical term for a twining plant stem.

• Lupulin is the substance in the cone that contains the oils and resins which give hops their aroma.

• The hops plant is a fast growing vine which can grow over 15-30’ tall in one season and is hardy to zone 5.

• Planted as a rhizome, hops prefer a sunny, moist location. It is dioecious, which means that male and female flowers occur on separate plants.

• There are many varieties of the hops plant and each has a distinctive flavor.

• While the brewing of beer with hops was first recorded in 822 AD, it is believed that beer brewing began thousands of years before that with spices and fruits instead of hops.

• Hops flowers can be used in cooking and can infuse flavor into a dish much like a bay leaf, or the flower can be grated and sprinkled on top of a dish. The stalks and leaves are edible too. • In addition to culinary uses, hops are used in sleep pillows as well as fresh and dried flower arrangements.

• The bitter resins in the female hops flower are a sedative. This is why both regular and nonalcoholic beer make people drowsy.

• Hops historically have also been cultivated to treat anxiety, restlessness and sleeplessness.

• The antibacterial characteristics of hops also served as a preservative

• Americans have been growing hops since colonial times. Initially production was centered in the Northeast. Today Washington state leads the production in the United States.

• Up to two pounds of hops can be harvested per vine.

Benefits of essential oils Essential oils have been used for thousands of years, from cultures as far-reaching as Ancient Egypt and India. These oils have been used for a variety of purposes, from spiritual to medicinal, and there are a significant number of modern scientific studiesthat support the theory that essential oils can be beneficial in a number of very real and quantifiable ways. The following are just a few examples of the types of benefits that essential oils can provide: EUCALYPTUS Eucalyptus has been used across many cultures and is often used in over-the-counter medications. When placed near the sinuses or on the chest it helps with congestion and sore muscles. Eucalyptus is particularly useful for diffusers like the ones we are testing — especially when used for congestion. LAVENDER Lavender is typically used for bruises, cuts, and skin irritation. Studies also show that the scent can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Application on the skin has its uses, however lavender is popular for diffusers because it can create a soothing, relaxing scent in a room. PEPPERMINT Used in many OTC remedies, peppermint can also be used as an essential oil in tea or other beverages, and also as a way to soothe the stomach. Studies show that peppermint increases oxygen levels in the blood, and can help a person be more aware. TEA TREE Tea tree oil is commonly used directly on the skin, and can be used for everything from acne to fungal infections. LOTS OF OTHERS There are literally hundreds of essential oils to choose from, some more useful than others. We recommend you do some research to find a few essential oils that will work best for you. In our article researching and testing essential oils, we discovered quality can greatly vary by brands. Proper use and selection are required to maintain safety and to properly enjoy the benefits of these oils.

Essential Oils & Diffusers! 

Do you need an essential oil diffuser?

A surprisingly small number of people actually know what an essential oil diffuser is. When we conducted a poll, only about half knew what an essential oil diffuser was.

That said, essential oil diffusers are quickly gaining popularity due to a growing interest in the health benefits of essential oils, as well as the fact that scented candles are not as safe as many once thought.

Research on the dangers of scented candles

There is a growing body of research which indicates that scented candles are not as safe as many think. In fact, many candles release harmful metals and compounds into the air — including lead, acetaldehyde, and formaldehyde.

While there are scented candles that do not release these harmful chemicals, a significant number do. This issue has underscored the value and importance of finding alternatives to candles.

If you currently use scented candles for anything from aromatherapy to ambiance, it is imperative that you research your brand of candle to ensure it does not contain chemicals that could be harmful to you or your family.

A better option would be to switch over to an essential oil diffuser, which provides the same benefits as a scented candle, but uses natural ingredients — many of which have been proven over thousands of years.

The health benefits of essential oil diffusers

For many essential oils, there are different benefits attributed to applying them directly on the skin, versus having them diffused into the air. Some essential oils shouldn’t be placed directly on the skin at all.

Essential oils serve a number of purposes, including the following:

AROMATHERAPY

Essential oils are used for everything from relaxation (lavender) to pain relief (rosemary) to decongestants (peppermint and eucalyptus). By diffusing these oils into the air, you can gain the benefits for hours without needing to reapply the oils onto your skin.

AMBIANCE

There’s a reason why many spas have a distinctive smell — they’re using essential oils! Oils such as tea tree oil have been used for centuries to create the ambiance of a calm, safe place.

INSECT REPELLANT

Many people are already familiar with the fact that citronella is a useful mosquito repellant. However, there are lots of other essential oils that work as well — which is a good thing if you’re not a fan of the citronella scent!

Essential oils that act as insect repellants include:

Cedarwood and eucalyptus for fleas

Thyme, juniper, and rose geranium for ticks

Citronella and peppermint for mosquitos

Once again, it’s worth mentioning that while there are candles that can perform many of the same functions as the oils listed, essential oils (especially 100% pure oils) contain none of the harmful chemicals found in many scented candles currently on the market.
