HOPS ESSENTIAL OIL
Our organically crafted Hops Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fresh flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant carefully grown in the northwestern region of the USA. Hops flowers are most widely known for their role in brewing beer, however they are often used in herbal tea blends for their soothing and calming qualities.
Hops plants are dioecious, meaning that they have separate male and female plants. The female flower is the one utilized for brewing beer. While the resins and alpha-acids found within hops flowers are responsible for making beer bitter, essential oils within the hop cone contribute many of its flavor and aroma characteristics.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Hops Oil is used in perfumery and fragrancing applications, and it is used at low dilutions in deodorants and deodorizing formulations. Being a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants, Hops Essential Oil also acts as an effective anti-aging agent that tightens skin, fights free radical damage and oxidative stress and prevents the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots on the skin. It has minerals and oils that help with skin inflammation and can also be used to decrease surface blood vessels. Hops Essential Oil is also often used to ease unwanted muscle spasms and help with minor pain and inflammation management. This essential oil is also used for keeping unwanted insects and germs at bay.
Emotionally and energetically, Hops Essential Oil can invite comfort during difficult emotional transitions, and encourage motivation during times of anxiety, stress and depression. The stimulating and refreshing aroma also uplifts and relaxes, assisting in both reducing fatigue and energizing the mind.
Oil Specific: Avoid in depression. May cause skin irritation.
General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
