Hops - sleep pillow

Filling the pillow

Back in March I harvested the hops from my 2 plants (see this post). Well I dried some of the hops and froze them for later use. Turns out 'later use' is not until now.......! I haven't managed to venture in beer brewing as yet (still on the 'must do' list however!). But since I often suffer from insomnia (probably due to working night shift) I thought it was high time I got my act together to make a wee sleep pillow. It probably took me all of 10 minutes!!!

Hopefully it will help me get a better night's sleep!

What a great project for your hops. I hope they do the trick for helping you rest!

It did seem to help last night, although if I make another I might add lavender too to tone down the strong beer scent!!

: ) I hadn't thought about THAT!

Apparently years ago when hops were picked by hand here in Kent, workers used to fall asleep in the field! It must work!
