|Hops is the component of beer that brings on drowsiness. This bitter herb, without the alcohol, can be effectively used as a sedative. Therefore, if you suffer from insomnia, make a white sachet and place dried hops inside. An aroma will be released that will cleanse your mind. Place the sachet under your pillow, and as you lie in bed, close your eyes and envision all of your worries drifting away. Breathe deeply, letting the scent of the dried hops coax you into a good night's sleep.
