Essential oil. Before you settle on a scent, test a small drop on your bare skin. Some essential oils can be harsh to some people.
Cut stems from hops and rinse in a strainer. Let air dry until they are completely dry, or dry them in an oven set low at 150 degrees with the oven door slightly cracked.
Fill a mason jar or glass bottle with hops, then pour oil in until it covers the hops entirely. Use a solar infusion (that is, let the jar sit in the sun and infuse for a day) then strain out the hops and return oil to your jar. Apply to skin as desired
