Pregnant women for milk development or at least that's what the doctor told the wife to find the hoppiest beer possible. He said to drink 8oz not the whole beer

I have heard that sleeping on a pillow filled with hops will result in pleasant dreams.

I make tea out if it when my throat hurts or if I cant sleep. I also put it in the coffee maker to add some flavor to the coffee.

Does it really help a sore throat? How do you make it? Any recommended hops for it?

Growing. They are very cool to watch grow and are quite a beautiful vine.

It's actually the yeast in beer that helps milk production. My wife researched it after somebody told her having a beer would help.

other than being used in pillows, "hops are also an ingredient in Julmust, a carbonated beverage similar to soda that is popular in Sweden during December, as well as Malta, a Latin American soft drink. Hops are sometimes added to some varieties of kvass. They are also used for flavor in some tisanes."

I use what I think is cascade whole leaf that I got from some guys back yard. I boil water then steep a hand full of them like tea for 10 min. If you want them really strong boil them for a minute with the water.

It really does seem to help. I read in some all natural tea book my wife has that they have a natural pain killing ability. If I can dig up the book ill let you know but I bet you could find it online.
