Hop Flowers For Ale & What Ails You

Many herbs offer both culinary and medicinal applications including hop flowers.

"Hops flowers are used not only as a flavoring agent in beer and ale (as are many other types of bulk herbs), but as a preservative as well; the popular "India Pale Ale" produced by many regional microbreweries had its origins in the early 19th Century when the old British Empire was at its height. In the days before refrigeration, most traditional English ales could not survive the six-month voyage from London to India aboard clipper ships; therefore, ale destined for outlying British territories contained an extra measure of hop flowers as a preservative.":

I have included hop flowers as a sleep aid (along with chamomile and valerian root). Best to consult your herbalist (or other nature-based practitioner) before self-treating. (I will stop using the valerian root for the time being.)

Susun Weed has an herbal course that highlights infusions and I am convinced of their superiority! Here's her introduction to the four categories of herbs.:

"Nourishing herbs -
Nourishing herbs do not contain poisons. They are safe to use in any 
quantity. Examples are seaweed, violet leaves, stinging nettle, comfrey leaves, oatstraw, red clover, linden, chickweed, hawthorn, rose hips, 
plantain, burdock, dark chocolate, and dandelion.

Tonifying herbs -
Tonifying herbs are like exercise. They are best used regularly, but not daily. The dose is generally large. Some examples are ginseng, motherwort, dandelion root, yellow dock root, St. Joan’s (John’s) wort, 
skullcap, echinacea, and astragalus.

Stimulating/sedating herbs - 
Stimulating/sedating herbs are best used only when there is a specific need. When used daily they erode core energy. The dose is usually 
moderate. Examples include ginger, black tea, coffee, most mints, 
lavender, valerian, and hops.

Potentially poisonous herbs - 
Potentially poisonous herbs are drug-like and need to be used with
 great care. They cause powerful reactions and may interfere with 
drugs. The dose is usually quite small. Examples include golden 
seal, cayenne, lobelia, poke root, blue cohosh, senna, mistletoe.":
