Avena sativa

organic oatstraw

plant overview
soothing and nutritious

Oatstraw is a term that collectively represents the stems, flowers and seeds of Avena sativa, the common oat plant and the same grain most people are familiar with as a hot breakfast cereal. Because the “straw” is harvested while the grain is still immature, oatstraw is sometimes referred to as milky oats. Oatstraw has a lot going for it in terms of nutritional value. A mere cup of oatstraw infusion (strong tea) is an abundant source of protein, silica, B vitamins and a whopping 300 milligrams of calcium. The herb is also tinctured. Powdered oatstraw is used to make various skin care preparations to ease dry, itchy skin. It is also added to herbal bath bags or even directly into the bath water.
