Hops

Hops from the hemp family are native to Central Europe. They are traditionally used for healing wounds and skin infections, but also act as a stimulant for collagen production in the skin. Therefore, hops are an ideal treatment for dry and mature skin.

In aromatherapy, hops acts as an aphrodisiac, and is considered relaxing and tonic. It smells strong, is calming and soporific and is therefore suitable for treating insomnia and restlessness.
