Oat is often used in combination with other nervine supporting herbs, whether relaxing or stimulating, to strengthen the entire nervous system. Oats are part of the grass family. Oatstraw is a highly nutritive herb and contains iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins and other minerals. Replenishes a stressed and depleted nervous system.
We harvest the oatstraw when the oat top is still maturing in the milky stage. We also grow oats as a cover crop to increase organic matter in the soil.
We find oatstraw tea incredibly nourishing and restorative, and we add the herb as a base in many blends.
