If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Hops Flower essential oil and its many wonders.
Found in Hungary, Humulus lupulus is steam distilled to produce an essential oil that has a fresh, sweet, and slightly bitter aroma. A middle note oil, Hops Flower blends well with Copaiba Balsam, Pine, and Citrus (like Lemongrass and Sweet Orange) and Spice (like Cumin and Nutmeg) oils.
Hops aren’t just a wonderful gift from nature that help craft your favorite alcoholic brews… They can be used for therapeutic reasons as well! As an essential oil, Hops Flower alleviates minor headaches, settles the mind, and calms the body. For headache relieve, combine with Pine and Coconut Oil and gently massage into the temples and neck. This combination can also be used to help with minor pain in the muscles and joints, as Hops Flower acts as an anti-inflammatory. For women with menstrual pain and cramping, mix with a carrier oil and massage into the abdomen. You’ll feel tops with Hops Flower! If you’re looking to substitute for Hops, you can try Frankincense or Helichrysum.
