Hops is not only a great bitter in beer which gives beer flavor, it is also an herb. As an herbalist, I look at the qualities of herbs. Hops has a bitter and cooling quality. What does that mean? Because of its bitter and cooling qualities it can help with a hot digestion. Which means it is a great herb for indigestion and acid reflux. It is also used to treat insomnia, nervous tension, anxiety, restlessness and headaches. Hops is also an antiseptic.
That is why at Hop In The Spa we have used hops in all the treatments. Whether you are soaking or getting a massage with the hand-crafted hop oil, you are getting the benefits of the oils from the hops absorbed through your skin plus it has a delightful aroma.
